I am popping in with a card to share.   I am playing along with this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.   This challenge really got me thinking about using dies for custom borders.   Must borders be on the "outside" edge?   Do borders have to be "straight?"  I answered "no" to both of these questions.  This is my take on using dies for borders.  Normally, I would use these leaves with flowers.  I chose to use them this time as "inside" borders that are not in a "straight" line.   

I started with smooth white card stock base.  I layered a watercolored card stock panel that I watercolored with some hawaiian shores ink refill.  I let it dry.  I stamped the sentiment from Wet Paint stamp set.  I used hybrid black licorice ink.  For  my leaves, I used Friendly Flowers stamp set and coordinating dies.  I stamped the leaves using limeade ice.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
