We are going "Across the Border" at Shopping Our Stash.

 We are not doing any travelling yet, but challenge 482 at Shopping Our Stash is to use any border punch or border die on your project. I'm sure everyone has some ancient fiskers or Stampin'up border punches in drawer somewhere, time to dig them out and put them to use. I decided to use one of the first border dies I bought and make a Birthday card. Although I'm still making Christmas all year it's nice to have a change.

I also dug deep to find the blackberry bliss cardstock and the ribbon matches perfectly although no room for  a bow. The Happy Birthday is one of my newer dies but never been used, I really like it and I'm sure it will get much more of a workout now.

Close up of the daisies and the very very old rhinestones I have no idea when I bought them or even where, but they matched.

Finished the inside with a couple of scraps of cardstock and a Stampendous Cling Stamp.

Challenges I would like to enter:

NBUS ~~ #34

A Place to Start ~~ #012022 January Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by here today and head over to the Main Blog and check out what border punches/dies the rest of the team have made.

I applaud you for using so much of your vintage stuff, Barbara! That's my goal, too (as well as NBUS), but sometimes I think I'll never live long enough to get to the bottom. You created a really pretty birthday design and I love the blackberry and white together! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

That is a very pretty border punch! I have quite a few punches, of course, but none as nice as this. Great colour choice, too!
