Fancy Borders

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).

Challenge #3 - Fancy Borders

Hi there happy crafters :) Today I have a pretty simply die cut card to share with you for our Fancy Borders challenge. Now I know borders are usually on the edge but I fancied making the border a focal point on the card.  I did colour some gold peel off stickers with a green Promarker and added them around the edge of the top mat to create an easy fancy border there too hahaha.  The design paper used is from my stash but I can't remember where from, sorry.  Next I die cut my text using the same design paper and finally a flower corner die cut on white card to which I added pearls to the centre of each flower.

Challenges entered:-
