Karen Middleton's Captured

I made a really quick and simple card this week using Karen Middleton's Captured.
I love how Karen draws faces. The images are so striking and I felt this coloured image really didn't need much in the way of embellishment to make a striking card.
So I covered a DL card blank with textured silver mirri card and patterned paper and cut a decorative frame from more textured mirri card.
I edged the image with a silver metallic pen and for a simple touch of detail added silver brads in the corners.
This image is available in red rubber or digi format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store.
