Fun With Borders!

Sorry Shanna

This is my latest "Mo" card....."Sorry Shanna". I think she's the cutest thing! I haven't come up with a saying for the inside yet, though. 

I've colored her with my trusty Copics, getting inspiration from the colors in the Basic Grey DP. The card stock is SU!'s Tempting Turquoise and Gable Green. They are retiring Gable Green along with many other of my favorite colors. I'll be putting in a fairly large order to stock up on the ones I just can't do without! 

The punched borders are both from Martha Stewart. (I should own stock in her company! LOL!) I've threaded some thin strips of CS through the fence punch. I really like the look.  I also punched both a red heart border and a white one, then glued the red hearts into the white border.

The pretty little flower buttons are from an old nightgown I tossed recently. I couldn't throw them away!

Thanks for taking a look!
