Hello! It's baby time! This week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is to use something *new* on your project. Well, it just so happens that I had a couple of new products to try out and I needed a card for a friend's baby shower (she's expecting a boy, who will be named Moses). The not one but two new things I used were 1) the "wave-looking" border punch, and 2) Glimmer Mist, which I spritzed on the clouds. The border punch had been on my Michaels wish list for some time, just waiting for the right 40% off coupon, and the Glimmer Mist was a result of the Make It Monday challenge a few weeks ago to make your own. I liked using it, but thought that buying some "real" stuff would be easier than making it myself, and look better too.
I hadn't even thought of the border punch as looking like waves until it was sitting on my craft table--must have been the angle. Now I'm going to be hard pressed to see it any other way, LOL!
