Not a card for a wee change ;0)

Hi Crafty Bloggers
I had saw a beautiful picture frame in a shop with an old postcard inside
 and this gave me the inspiration to make this for
The Magnolia Down Under Challenge #228 Doohickey's Only
I started with a plain frame and I painted it roughly with studio gesso .
 While still wet I painted on Galeria glass beads texture gel.
Inside the frame I used pion papers and stamped Magnolia Postcard text stamps with black stazon ink. I cut the butterflies from the design paper and edged them with distress ink.
I used Doohickey tea labels and another cut out from the papers.
I have added this heart from Live & Love crafts to the butterfly Doohickey die.

I added this dragonfly and and another key charm on the other side
 also lightly painted with white gesso.
I have used the doohickey house which I coloured with distress ink
 using a blending tool and used the doohickey die dragonfly on top.
I adore the daisy doohickey die and pinched the corners that I saw in the Magnolia Magazine and finished with a doohickey swirl underneath and a hobby house button in the middle.

Here is the doohickey peony.

Can you tell I just love these dies !!
I hope you like my creation had so much fun doing something different
and will be placed in my bedroom as I love the overall result.
Thank you so much for stopping by
