Creative Belli Challenge #135- Frames-Make it Fancy

  The Creative Belli Challenge #135 for the next two weeks is Frames- make your image or sentiment 'dressed up' with a frame.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!  I decided to use a frame from the Delilah set from Lettering Delights using the  Make the Cut program on my Electronic cutting machine, which I had to dust off .....  and am happy to play with my cutting files- I am a beginner......   
The background DPS is by Memory Makers and I won it from Becca a couple of years ago.... The lace is from my stash and the rhinestone matched perfectly- are from my old and forgotten stash as well.
I wanted to share a quick TIP for cutting out your label:
When you cut out a label- this is a tip to conserve cardstock- especially when you are using beautiful cardstock that you only bought one sheet of...... : )

Measure your cardstock, and cut the label from the portion that will be hidden in the layer below.....

My sentiment is a digi and is from Create with TLC

 When you upload your challenge card to any gallery (Splitcoast, CDAC, etc....), please use keyword CBC135
  We have some new DT members- and the inspiration is fabulous- please check out the Creative Belli Blog for links to their cards!

Challenges I am submitting my card to:
Going Grey with Scrap-Creations- Die Cuts
There She Goes- Back to Nature
Crazy Challenge-ribbon, image/sentiment and gems

Thanks for stopping by!
