A Blessed Season

Ashley has us creating patterned frames for our cards, this week, on Make It Monday.
Her card was so beautiful on several levels. Her colors were dramatic, and the 
layers were definitely speaking to me. 
So those 2 inspirations were my starting point.

My patterned frame was made with plaid builders on Pale Peony cardstock.
Behind that is Scallop Stackers Small. When that is cut, it leaves the center
whole, or in my case solid red. I opened it up with the oval from Scalloped
A2 Die Collection, almost a perfect opening cut.
Seasonal Borders: Winter formed my swag. The many pieces in the set
allow for all kinds of design. I can't wait to make a wreath with the holly 
and berries!

Sentiment: Penned Elegance Christmas.

Play along with Ashley on PTI's blog!
