Crafty Creations Challenges: Frame It!

Wednesday already -- and time for Crafty Creations Challenges. This week my teammate,  Donelda, is asking us to Frame It! We are looking for you to frame your creation or main image in some way -- it might be doodling, matting, stamping, a chipboard frame... you get the idea. Our sponsor this week is Create with TLC, who is offering a $15 gift certificate to our challenge winner. The design team was also supplied with some beautiful framed images to use. 


This image reminded me of an amaryllis my mother-in-law grew just after Christmas, so I attempted to colour my flower much the same way. I printed the image a second time on textured cardstock, cut the inside of the frame out, and backed it with vellum. So I guess I have a framed window card? I do like the way it sets off the central image. My window frame qualifies this for this week's Do You Stack Up? (DYSU #70) challenge to use circles. And since I always seem to do Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, I'm linking to this week's Lawn Fawn Lawnscaping CAS challenge.
There are so many possibilities with this challenge -- hope you can join us! 














Supplies: white & Bazzill red devil textured cardstock, vellum, Create with TLC vintage amaryllis, Prismacolor pencils, Spellbinders circle die
