Frame It At Cheery Lynn Designs This Week

                                         This week our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is
                                   FRAME IT

 Here are the rules:
  • You MUST follow the theme and use at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die, of course, we would love to see more than one. 
  • You MUST add a link to your blog post in the InLinkz at the end of that post; no back posting, only new projects are allowed
  • You MUST link to our blog in your post
  • You may only enter the challenge ONCE per week.
The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs. They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.  In addition, our design team members will be voting on 3 favorites who will receive a Weekly Spotlights badge to display on their blog. Be sure to come back on Wednesday to see who earned the badge.
 I used the following dies:
I decided to take the challenge in a different direction   and do a Framed wreath!

I decided to use my larger die and then use a scallop design to cut out the inside.
 I cut out my candle set then went to work "accenting" with extra greenery  and a poinsettia leaves. I also decided to mat so I could add the extra pieces.
I wanted to share how I built up my frame.
 Isn't this Christmas greeting wonderful? I love that the pieces are separate and can be placed several ways
 Do you see my berries? I used the medium rose pieces to cut these.
I just used a little Memento ink  to color the flame and edge the greenery.
So how do you like my Frame It project?
I just had to use some of these dies I haven't had time to play with yet.
Won't you join us this week?
