A Cut Above

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see the other one.  At the Flourishes Blog, the challenge is to use diecuts, border punches, anything that produces a cut edge:


My card uses some of my favorite diecuts and border punches, along with some die-cut Sizzix rolled roses that Suze sent me awhile back and another example of Susan Winget's beautiful art, the rose designer paper.   I let the beautiful papers speak, the sentiment being the only thing stamped here.


supplies: white cardstock, unknown yellow dotted paper, K&Company Susan Winget Spring Blossom Spring Mat Pad (rose paper), BoBunny reverse of flamingo double dot dp, Nestabilities oval and scallop oval diecuts, Martha Stewart doily border punch, Sizzix rolled rose dies, seam binding dyed with worn lipstick distress ink,  PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, versafine onyx black ink
