IAAS Fancy Borders

This challenge at International Art and Soul is Fancy Borders. I've used my favourite border of all time and it's one of Spellbinders dies.

I've made a very simple CAS card but I love it (even though I do say so myself lol)

The card blank is a small Craft UK 6x6 and I used a background paper from one of my boxes of Craft Box goodies. I thought they were beautiful muted shades of pink and yellow with a darker lacy border printed along the bottom edge. It looked almost like earth and so I decided to stamp the tree as the focal point.The tree is by Bee Crafty and I stamped it in Memento brown ink. I cut the border in yellow card from Papermill and fixed it to the top edge. The card was finished.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
