Celebrate your Day!

I love Colors, it makes me happy. I love Rainbows as its colorful too. Talking about rainbows...that's the challenge at the Embellish blog. Still why am I edgy...Oh!!! in a good way as that's the theme at CAS-ual Friday and Moxie Fab World beautiful borders.
This week we are Getting Edgy! Use your border punches, rip some cardstock, whatever your pleasure to add a fun edge to your Clean And Simple project! My liking for CAS style always makes me happy to participate in their challenges.
 For my card, I cut the border strips of white paper, colored them using distress inks and spritzt some perfect pearl water after edging it with some brown ink. Love the subtle pearly shine. Hope its clear in the closeup photo. I then glued the strips in gradient and tied my favorite twines. To finish some color to the edges of the card and a sentiment.


 Thanks for dropping by!!!
