TGCDT: A Trio of Wreaths

Dear Fellow Stampers and Friends~
Welcome to the September Blog Hop of The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team. Each month we come together from across the globe to share some of our designs and hopefully inspire you to re-create them for yourself.  Recently I have been working to design frameable pieces.  The hobby stores seem to be filled with an abundance of little framed sayings and popular phrases.  I picked up three smaller inexpensive square frames that I thought would work well for a makeover!   This month my entry for the blog hop is a trio of wreaths.  I hope you will enjoy and I'd love to hear your thoughts on the project.  Thank you and Happy Stamping!
