Anything But Christmas

Good Morning my friends, It's time for a new challenge today at Oldie But A Goodie
This week is our lovely Lisa's turn to host and she would like to see 'Anything but Christmas'
I love this Gruffie image, he's one of my favourites, I usually use a bulldog clip and some other bits for embellies, but this card is going to my cousin for his birthday in America, so for postage reasons I have kept it as light as possible.
I decided to do something different with this card and do an embossed frame around the outside, then set my DP ito the frame.

Don't forget to head over to Oldie But a Goodie for all the details of this challenge, to see the super prize that is on offer from Bugaboo to the winner and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
