Week 4 with Kary Lim

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! More about the holidays later, got another guest spot with Kary and then we start our new release sneak peeks!

I have only "played" with the new border from "A Year of Borders" that matches "Wild at Heart" once so far, so when I opened Kary's latest creation I squealed with delight to see how gorgeous the tiny border flowers snipped apart look popped up over the larger "Wild at Heart" frame, I love the mix of sizes together! Don't these little blossoms creeping out of the corner just make it come to life? And the tiny pearl in the center of each is such a sweet touch!
Here are Kary's instructions:

I stamped Wild At Heart frame stamp onto white cardstock with pink ink (Versamagic Pixie Dust) then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then stamped the flower border using a darker pink (Versamagic Pink Petunia) and clear emboss it. Cut out the flowers, and added pearls on the centres. The large flower piece was added onto card base with foam squares. Then I used a metallic silver pen and drew a frame on the card base. Then adhered the cut-out flowers onto the card w foam adhesive as well as the sentiment. I sponged the sentiment with the pink ink and added some pink faux stitches around it (using Memento Angel Pink).
Let's go see another beautiful "A Year of Borders" creation from Kary!
