Elementary Elegance, You're a Gem, Borderlines

At our team quarterly meeting last Saturday, my brief was to showcase this set.  I have to admit I had a mental block about this one, because it only comprised the frame and the accompanying images are really small.  I will share the projects I did once my event is over on Sunday.
The upshot is that these same images are small enough to use for the inserts to Stampin' Up!'s new Simply Adorned range pendants!  The inserts are 1" x 1 1/4", and you can see the bird in the top left corner so it will give you an idea how tiny it is.
Funny story about this card,  I made this as a special "thank you" for a special person in my life, but when I finished it, I liked it so much I couldn't bear to part with it!  I embossed the frame in Silver and against the Pool Party it looks stunning in real life.  The centre has been cut out on the front panel.

Inside, I positioned the punched out curly label in the "window" and raised it on dimensionals. As I'd used the sentiment "you're a Gem" from the You're a Gem stamp set in the spring mini, I applied a string of rhinestones all round the edge to frame it.
The silver embossed image at the bottom is from Borderlines, and I sponged a faux torn edge effect over it for some colour.  To finish, I used the embosslits Beautiful Butterflies and adhered randomly on the front of the card as well as on the curly label.
