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.

Be sure to check out the challenge for a chance to win a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website.

Oh no, Sandy! Now I have to buy more dies. Your flower tutorial is wonderful and your card is gorgeous! I haven't tried any of the rolled flower dies but now I'm going to have to. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
