Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog Borders/Edges

Hello everyone 
I have had a lovely weekend, in and out of my craft room.
I have my card to show you for this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn is Borders / Edges
I just love the colours and pictures on the new Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Collection so much so that I had to get the 12 x 12 paper pack and the 8 x 8 one as well.
So I have used a bit of each one to make this card.
The Cheery Lynn Dies that I have used are 
Anastasia Border B 136
Daisy Lace Bracelet DL 135
Lace Corner Deco Die D B164
Nestabillities Dies Oval 

 I have used an 8 x 8 card and then cut the top fold in two places to get the middle part.
I measured the size of the picture that I had to use and then cut the top part of the card 
at 2 inches and then at 6 inches so that left 4 inches in the middle. 
You actually glue the 2 side pieces down so that it looks like this,
 And then I have used Anastasia Border for all four edges, 
A Kaiser Rubon for the sentiment in the middle and 
because the paper is double sided, it looks good from the underneath as well.
I love this picture of the Lady with her parasol, 
And finally i have used the Lace Corner D to make the flowers and finished it of with the Daisy Chain Bracelet cut to fit and some pretty pearls.
I hope you like this one, I am of to do some more craft projects, 
"so much to do and so little time"
Cheers Shelley
