We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 November. 

The theme for that challenge is Centre Stepper Card

Well everybody here is my take on the Borders Challenge:

I used a ribbed white card as my basic card and made a A5 card
Layered it with Pink Pearl and a lovely pink textured card
I used Spellbinders Grand Plain Ovals & Grand Decorative Ovals One
and cut this lovely frame from Pink Pearl card
For the corners I used a lovely Memory Box die Macarena Corner Die
I added 4 flat back pink pearls o to the corners

My image is from the lovely stamp collection available at SweetStamps.com

Sweet Posey Bouquet & Corner Duo

I used the following Promarkers to color this image in:
Apple & Pine

I used the following Copics to color this image in:
R85, R81 & B21
