Bordering Accents

     I am really loving these fresh In-colors…Pool Party & Calypso Coral.  Throw in the lovely Everyday Enchantment DSP from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and these colors have taken on new life.  I really hadn’t touched these In-colors until now. 

100_4244     The Adorning Accents Edgelits die coordinates so perfectly with the dotted border from Bordering On Romance.  Can you tell what the vase is?  That’s right…I used the Ornament punch with the point cut off!  Great way to get more use out of a seemingly seasonal item!  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla with a sentiment from Bring On The Cake.  The entire card (sentiment panel and inside layer too) were sponged with Soft Suede to give it a softer look.

     This card was made with a very special lady in mind…my aunt! :)  She had recently celebrated her 76th birthday.  It’s been a difficult year for her.  Here’s wishing this year will be so much better!  I love you, Althea! 

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give your punches some new purpose :)



Supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here.
