Life holds many blessings

I have finally finished the demo card for next month’s make and takes at Stamp and Deliver. I really was struggling with this for some reason.  


I had the sentiment to use and the border folder but didn’t know what else to do. After placing both on many different patterned papers, I looked at a  leftover scrap and it clicked. I used my nesties Label 4 to layer the image. The border embossing is done directly on the card front. The printed paper butts right up to the edge (or rather where the edge would be). Since the paper had streaks of color in the corner I was lucky enough to find these button by Tres Jolie that also had the color streaks on them, how cool was that! They looked naked just sitting there so I tied a bit of hemp in them.

So what do you think? You can click on the image for a larger view. In other news, I recently discovered that I had over 12,300 views to my blog! I was blown away by the number. Little ole me who is not on a design team or widely known on SCS. I have only been blogging for 6 months and never in my wildest dreams thought my counter would get that high. At this rate I will hit 15,000 before Christmas I imagine. When I hit 15,000 I will have some super fantastic blog candy up for grabs. Not sure what yet, but some stamp sets and neat embellishments for sure. So if you want a chance to win this, please keep coming back for a visit and watch for the candy to be announced.
