Creative Card Border

Happy Make-It-Monday, PTI friends! Danielle Flanders had a great tutorial on how to make a decorative die cut border without using traditional border dies. You can check out the details here. I originally wanted to use my favorite "Rosie Posie" set until I realized the dies weren't separated so I couldn't make the border I wanted. My second choice was to use "Sweet Life", another great set. Here's the card I made:

I dressed it up with some silvery ribbon and a silver card base. I'll probably use it as a wedding or anniversary card. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
