You've been Framed - Altered wall plaque

Good afternoon everyone,   First let me say that my thoughts and prayers are with all of those who are commemorating 9/ll where ever you are in the  world.

Back to my altered 8x8 wall plaque.  I bought 3 of these for the princely sum of £1.00 with a view to alter them.  This is the first one to have the treatment.

I wanted to keep the gingham on the outside (which I love) I merged a digital image from make it crafty with the adorable cherry picking Tilda and I think for a first attempt it's not too bad. I used TH broken china for the sky, Tilda and the digital image have been coloured using Pro Markers and Derwent Water colour pencils. The full recipe for my card is below this post.  The flowers are hand made using a spellbinders rose die and my trusty tweezers to give them a prima look. The frame around Tilda has been made using corrugated card, ruler and a craft scalpel.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot Challenge:  Would like you to Frame it this month by framing your image.  I'm hoping this qualifies for another entry as it's not a card.
Simply Magnolia Challenge:  Anything Goes this week.
Craft Your Days Away Challenge: Make your own flowers this week
Do You Stack Up Challenge:  Would like to see Texture this week
Deep Ocean Challenge: Would love to see Hearts this week.

That's all from me for now my dears, I could be back later though!
