Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree & BorderLines
This weeks challenge for the Pals Paper Arts is a sketch challenge from our own Margaret Moody. I always love these styles of challenge because the work is done for me and all I have to do is plug in the components. I relied on an old friend and a new friend for this creation. - Lovely As A Tree and Borderlines. And of course I used another favorite set of mine - Thoughts & Prayers.

Putting It Together Tips:
- The Sweet Buttons Embosslits Die is a great investment if you can't invest in buttons. With this die you can have whatever color button you want as long as you have the color in card stock. I used a cross stitch needle to thread the small pieces of Linen Thread through the holes in the button to give them an authentic look.
- Borderlines is a wonderful new stamp set from the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog. The stamps are 5 1/4'' long which makes them the perfect size for borders in either direction on an A2 style card. An A2 card measures 4 1/4'' x 5 1/2'', or a quarter of a standard 8 1/2'' x 11'' piece of card stock.
- I wanted to keep this card monochromatic, but that's a lot of white space behind the focal point. Embossing folders are perfect to add some texture and interest to your creation without overwhelming the composition. The dots are repeated on the leaves of the Borderlines impression.
- River Rock, though part of the Neutrals Collections family, is really a wonderfully ”natural“ green that compliments most browns. Try it on your next card!
