trying new things

I decided to try a couple of things I'd seen lately. an easel card, and the punch technique framing the front of this card. I really like how the frame turns out. it starts with a 3" square, and then you take the dotted scallop ribbon border punch and center it on each side (I hope SU! adds more of these to the new catalog). it allows a small piece to stay intact and act as the background layer for your center piece. I used the fabulous florets stamp and added crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter (lousy picture, sorry) and rhinestones (can't get enough of those). I got the instructions for the easel card from sandy hancocks blog (thanks sandy). love this beyond the garden dsp. my sister and I sat down and made several cards with all the different patterns.
