Stamped Borders

Good Morning!

Well I hope you enjoyed the Holiday as much as we did.  So blessed to have my Mom and my Daughter, (and her fiancé), in the house on this special day.  That hasn't happened since 1987. 

Blessed I tell you!!!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at PTI, Stamped Borders, Sympathy or Thinking Of You and the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

This was a fun card to make, just stamping images willy-nilly!  I chose 3 Stampin' Up Inks, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Pear this combo!  The stamp sets are Ruby Reprise and Tag-Its #2, both from PaperTrey Ink.  I made a mask using the cut out from the Spellbinders Classic Oval die, and then stamped all along the border using that little twig image in all 3 colors.  Stamped some flowers and more of that twig image onto a second oval die cut and then popped that up on 3 dimensional dots.  I also added a bit of Sakura Clear Star to the twigs on the center part.
I am so happy to be making NON Christmas cards.  While I absolutely LOVE the Holiday, the decorating and cooking and baking and even the cleaning in preparation for the loved ones that will be under our roof.....I am also glad it is over.  I am looking forward to 2015 for so many wonderful things ahead of us.  My daughter is getting married in the Fall so I can now turn my attention to all of that planning and preparation.....I am sure it will be a labor of LOVE!
Merry Merry (one last time) to you all!  And a very HAPPY and HEALTHY New year!
Thanks for stopping by!
