Love Those Border Punches!

Sharon must love them, too!  And what a great idea for the No Time To Stamp challenge on her blog!  I use border punches all the time, but wanted to do something "extra" with it since it was a challenge.  How about "extra-patriotic?"  This is an older SU! set that I got from a friend last week.  It just put me in the mood for the red, white and blue!

This card uses the scallop border punch, but it's not necessarliy for the challenge.  It was supposed to be a CASE of a card on Lynn's blog...however, it morphed as I stamped!  The butterfly became a dragonfly!  Magic!  I wanted to catch that irridescence of the beautiful dragonfly I tried a black image with turquoise stickles over top.  It gives me that I'm happy.  (Always a good ending to a stamp outing!)   


  1. Fantastic cards Shannon!
    Love the wavy border on you God Bless America card, very cool!
    And your dragonfly card is wonderful! The glittery dragonfly just shimmers!

  2. Been perusing your blog and I really like your work...especially this one...LOVE it!!!


Thank you for taking time to leave some thoroughly encouraging words!
