Artistic Borders

Yes.... I made this card. I know, I know, I didn't color it at all. I didn't even use a color pencil to shade anything. Every once in a while I give my pencils a short rest. Really short...

The card base (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) is made from a linen textured card stock. The flowers and stems are stamped in place directly on the card and then again on colored card stock with brown ink. I added art flowers and buttons with a little pearl cotton to the centers and that's it.

It's Monday, and I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I'm going to do some 'work' in The Card Castle today. But first I have to do some cleaning from the mess I made last week. I can't even see the desk top right now. It's Monday! I hope your day is blessed! Choose JOY!

Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 106:1.

What a GREAT card! I really am going to have to borrow that look - it's so super! I also LOVE to see your desk area looking like that...makes my stampin' table not feel so bad that it has company from time to time.

Very cute card! My room looks just like your desk and I don't have the energy to clean it right now!

My comment is going to sound just like the first two! It IS a great card, one that I too will replicate Mary fashion...
The stamping area: I think I told you that I have a corner in our living room as my stamping space. In the morning I deal with the clutter, and in the evening I vow to leave it in good order before I go to bed.

Love the card. My craft table is smaller than yours, but there are two projects spread out drying so I just can't possibly clean up:)

too funny Mary! I promise myself daily yearly and monthy that I'm going to clean up when I'm finished.. The problem is, I'm never finished.
