Hello friends!
Have you ever get stuck with ideas about what to do with border dies?
It's my turn to share ideas with you over CAS-ual Fridays!
one boder die, two ways

Today's post will give you some ideas as to how to use them colorfully and creativity!
My first card is a vibrant and colorful one. I created the paper with Peerless.
Lovely 

For my 2nd card, I created this softer-looking background with Gelatos.
you're wonderful

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #327


wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Penny Black products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I used Penny Black's Florets and Heartfelt for the sentiment.
A journey
 First I stamped the butterflies in various colors with the help of MISTI. I then used the Diamond Border Die to decorate the sentiment. 

This Diamond Border is quite intricate! With a piece of vellum and green pattern paper (Tea Garden), the stamped sentiment is completed with gold strings as the final touch.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
