Christmas Frame

Well it's been so long since I've posted I hardly know how to. I made this Christmas  Frame a couple of weeks ago but was waiting on the frame so I could post it. 12x12 frames are so hard to find especially this time of year. I got my inspiration from the Kaisercraft blog and a friend who had done a class recently . I didn't have all Kaisercraft papers so I used the Graphic 45 collection Christmas Past which worked well with Kaisercraft Turtle Dove collection.The Pionsettas were made using TH Pionsetta die and Pinecones & branch leaves using TH pinecone die. The tiny flowers(rosettes I made by cutting a spiral circle and then rolling . Pionsetta flowers were sponged with Festive berries DI and then sprayed with Heirloom gold perfect pearls . I added Rock Candy  Distress Stickles to the rosettes.To complete the frame I did some sewing around the edge of the outer layer.
