In order to redeem myself from last week's disaster, I thought that I'd put a fun spin on this week's sketch challenge. Instead of using scallops, I used a Filigree Border that really put an elegant touch to this card. It was a very fun surprise to find out that while picking my lamp shade, the filigree design was incorporated into that, so of course I used it. I cut four full lengths of the Filigree border and added a 1/8" piece of Scor-Tape to the bottom of each. While working from the right side of the card to the left putting down my borders, I staggered them as Natasha suggested so that every other border was aligned to get the full effect of the pattern. I then spritzed the card with a mist or two of glimmer mist to tie the image (light/shine) in. I die-cut my images and sentiment, and then stamped them. The final step was adhering them to the card with foam dots.
I hope that you like this card and that it provides you with some inspiration. Enjoy!
