Delightful Challenge Thursday

Hello everyone!  I hope you're enjoying your week.  Mine seems to be going by pretty quickly despite the hours I'm putting in.  Oh well, I'm not minding all this overtime so much, I'll have Christmas money.

This week's challenge is up at Delightful Challenges.  I really like this one.

FRAME IT
(use a frame or mat)

Now this is pretty simple and to me sort of like an anything goes challenge because who doesn't use a mat?  So let me show you what I made with it.  Was I talking about Christmas a minute ago?


I absolutely love my card!  I am featuring Carolers Accessories Set and A Touch of Christmas Sentiments set.  My base is a white base and then I used a great piece of paper (and my last one) from the Merry Christmas collection by Echo Park.  I cut a frame from the Spellbinder Rectangles and Scalloped Rectangles dies and glued the lamp post to the frame.  Then I sponged a bit of black ink (I think I need to get Black Soot Distress Ink) on the sentiment and adhered that to the card.  My final touch was a to add a hand-made poinsettia - leaves from Foliage Shapabilities and little baubles for the center.  I hope you like it as much as I do.
