Speedy Fox & Friends 156 - Punched Border

Happy Saturday!  Last weekend at this time were out  camping and this blogger left her camera at home so no photos to share!!!!  We had the most beautiful weather you can imagine.  Smack dab in between the 2013 Pollen blizzard (pollen count was around 8000 on Thursday and blowing in yellow clouds.)  and the chilly rain on Sunday we were given  48 hours of stunning spring weather with beautiful blue skies and moderate temps.  It was a quick trip but memories were made and I even took a nap!!!

We are home this weekend and I am thinking about stamping, how about you?  We have a brand new challenge today at Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge.  We are creating cards with punched borders this week. For more inspiration and all the details on the challenge join us HERE .

For my card I thought I would use this K&Co. DP, which was one of my first DP purchases.  I love the watercolor look of the flowers in this sheet.  Since I wanted some of the DP to show I decided to shorten the opening of the card and punch a decorative border.

The butterfly is from the Mark's Finest Paper & Stamps a HC Set "Glad Glads" and  was stamped on the remains of an alcohol reinker scrap that didn't work out.  The sentiment on the outside and inside is from the same set.

I popped up the center of the sentiment....

When card is opened a big view of the Water Color Bouquet DP.

Now I just need to find someone to send this to that likes flowers, really likes flowers!!! I might have overdone the DP a bit!

We hope you will play along with Speedy Fox & Friends this week.  One lucky winner will receive this stamp set:

  1. Angie--this card is gorgeous!!! I don't think you overdid the flower BG paper at all! This really is a beautiful card! TFS

  2. That paper is gorgeous and so is your card.

  3. Very pretty! And love how you finished the inside!

  4. Angie, this is a beautiful card. No way did you over do it on the flowers. I love how you did the inside with the fence that has the sentiment on it.

  5. Wow, this card says everything spring to me. it is really very pretty.

  6. Angie,
    Wow, your card is gorgeous and elegant! You didn't overdo the flowers whatsoever (the DP is lovely) - they're perfect and are sure to make someone smile and do a happy dance on receipt!!

  7. Such a fresh look to the front of your card, and I love the way the inside has the DP, which extends to the edge when the card is closed. Very creative!

  8. That lace edge is one of my favourites - had to re-buy that punch when my first one gave up. Really like your card layout and that cute little fence with the sentiment - what a great idea. You are certainly the master of card insides.

  9. So pretty Angie! Love the layered doilies and fancy patterned paper!

  10. Oh my goodness, this is beautiful, Angela. I love that designer paper and your card is beautiful. I sure don't think you overdid the flowers and your border is so pretty.
    So sorry you forgot the camera. I would have enjoyed the photos.


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
