Your Next Stamp Challenge #17~Border Punch!

Hello!  It's time for another fun Your Next Stamp Challenge!  This time the awesome Starlet Maylee challenged us to use a border punch!  We all love our punches, right?!  I used this super adorable Flower Bouquet Fhiona image and this really pretty dp that I found at Joann's called the DCWV Linen Closet paper pad.  I just love these colors together!  I decided to cut some of the edge off the front of the card, and I added this pretty heart border that I punched with a Martha Stewart Punch.  I added a strip of the soft blue to the inside edge so that it would show throught the punched border when the card was closed. 

So did you notice that pretty Just for you sentiment?  This is a sneak peek of one of the new sets that will be released on June 8th called Elegant Greetings!  Don't you love that pretty font?!  There are 11 sentiments in the set, which you will be reaching for all the time!  Karen has been showing a few sneak peeks on her blog as well, and she has a Sneak Peek Contest going on!  You can win a special New Release Surprise Package just by going to her blog and taking a guess!!!

I really like the colors you picked on this card Kerri. How pretty to use the hearts border punch for the edge. This created a pretty trim on the side. Very cute card!!

I love that heart border on the edge - that's a great touch!

RE: the blog hop. I don't do felt. And I am anti-that company lately. Really frustrated with them. So I wasn't going to do something I don't want to do especially for them right now - LOL
