In the Frame at..

The challenge this week is ... "they would like to see a frame of some sort or something in a frame... we'd like you to be as inventive as you like.
You could doodle, draw, emboss, ink, paint, colour, print, stamp, emboss resist,  mask or any other method you can come up with to get a frame of sorts into your design."

So I am entering this card
How I made this..
The picture is the family Iguana, Hector, he will be ONE in two weeks time..
Why am I making the Iguana a card your thinking... well the other half suggested it...
I chose one of his pictures and then spent a little time in Photodraw editing him, changing colour, texture, size etc, I then printed him straight onto while card. 
Then I embossed the double frame round the picture and stamped Happy Birthday Hector
Really easy card, so easy I am thinking of maybe making one with the other half on.

Thanks for stopping by xx

This certainly is novel, I haven't seen an Iguana's birthday card before and very splendid he looks too!
Thanks so much
