Another little something...

Hi!  I have something a little bit different for you tonight.  I wasn't really happy with my submission for the Gingersnap Creations Border Punches challenge, and so I decided to go another route and submit another card.  I saw this card by the amazing Joan over at Stamping with a Passion! and immediately knew I needed to CASE her.  The background looks perfect to use border punches with!!!  So, I decided to make my own version using some new stamps from Pink Paislee that I purchased the other day.

Here is the card~

Details~




I used different patterned papers out of my scrap drawer, silver glass glitter and plain old school grade gold glitter, three different border punches, and a gel pen for my background panel.  To add some interest to the fabulous bee image, I highlighted two sides with a border of blue, put an office label on the right side, and then added crackle accents and rhinestones.  The flowers cascading down were an after thought--and I really like them! :)

In addition to re-entering the Gingersnap Creations Border Punches challenge, I'd also like to submit this to the Creative Belli At Least 3 Shapes challenge--I've used a bunch of shapes on this one!!! :)

So, what are your thoughts?  I really like the way it turned out!!!  I hope you've been inspired to create something new today--and won't you join in the fun at these two fabulous challenges!  Happy crafting! :)
