Cheery Lynn Designs Beautiful Borders challenge
I know many people in the States are wishing for Spring (not me, I love snow) But here is a Spring themed card I did for this week's Cheery Lynn Designs Beautiful Borders challenge. I began with Japanese Lace Pattern frame, but instead of die cutting it, I embossed the detail as a background for my flowers. I arranged my Olive Branches and then added flowers created with the new Miniature Rose die. The white border is the fabulous Ribbon Eyelet Border with Piercings. I threaded a piece of yellow card stock through the border but first I added textured with my Rectangle Stitcher Plate. I think it makes it look like woven ribbon. The finishing touch was adding the green Anastasia Border across the bottom. It is such an elegant border. I computer generated the saying. Finished size is 6" square.
