I had so much fun making this card, but I really had to use some brain power. I knew I wanted to make the punched border, but I wanted it bigger than the standard measurements you can use for the MS punch around the page sets. So I had to do a little ruler work to figure out how to punch and cut for the size I wanted. It wasn't too bad, just a little time consuming.
All the DP's except the butterfly are from the Basic Grey Curio collection. Almost all the edges are distressed with scissors and inked with Distress inks. Also on the first DP mat, I used some Versamark and Distress embossing powder around the edges.
I had to make the die cut that's behind the image on my Cricut cause I just didn't have the right size Nestie to fit there. Poor ole dusty Cricut. :-( I used a gold gel pen to draw an inside border on the last layer.
The flowers and lace were all sponged with distress ink and I sprayed the lace with some Glimmer Mist too.
The butterly (my newest MS purchase--couldn't waste that 50% off coupon could I? LOL) is covered with Rock Candy Crackle paint.
Finally, the image is the sweet little "Sophie" from Mo's Digital Pencil. Sophie and her friend are colored with Copics and framed with some more Distress ink.
I didn't get to play along at Mo's for the chance at a Guest spot last month because we were on our awesome vacation, but I'm going to give it a shot this month. Hope you ladies like her. :-)
