You've been Framed! A Noon Time Challenge

It's the second day of Flourishes' sneaks and with it comes another way to win our entire February release! What fun! This time, they plan to "frame you!" Not in a CSI way, but using a frame in some way, shape or form in your card or creation! :-)

    

HOW TO PLAY: Simply use a frame - whether it be stamped or with a die cut - on your card or creation. Just that simple! Let's see that creativity flow!  If you upload to a gallery, please use the keyword FLLCFEBRW2. Entries must be in before Friday, February 10th at 5PM EST. You can click HERE for all the official rules!

Yours truly took the challenge and used one of the sets we are sneaking today called Tiny Flowers and Tags. I had an absolute blast using one of the little cherry blossoms in this set to create my framed sentiment.

This creation really was easy peasy. I used a Spellbinders Classic Oval - traced an oval on my Flourishes Classic White Card stock (using the inner frame and a pencil) and then started stamping my cherry blossoms along that line. FYI: Be sure, if you do trace the oval, to erase your pencil marks before you start coloring. You might need to heat set your ink to prevent it from smearing. I learned the hard way that pencil does not erase after you've colored over it with Copic markers! This image above is actually my second try! ;-)

When coloring, I used these collections...

Add my oval to a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur), mat it using some pretty decorative paper (a mix of My Mind's Eye), some beautiful May Arts velvet crochet trim, crochet lace, a crystal and... tada!!! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 

Want to see how some of the other Flourishes Designers were "FRAMED"??? Head on over and see…
Thanks everyone for stopping by! Flourishes has one final set to sneak tomorrow that's perfect for Easter. It's a beautiful image with a religious flair that just made my jaw drop the first time I set sights on it! So, be sure to check back! Until then.... enjoy your day! Oh, and while you're hopping around seeing the other DT member's creations, please be sure to tell Dawn Burnworth Happy Birthday!!! :-)
