Easel Card

Well everybody here is my take on the Borders Challenge:

I used a plain white card stock and layered it
with White Glitter card and then with Blue
Added ribbon to the center
I used a Cheery Lynn Design die, Lace Corner Deco E
Cut 4 corners in the blue card and added to the 4 corners

My Image is a lovely Village Scene within a frame Stamp from 
SweetStamps.com called:  House Scroll Frame
I stamped it with VersaMark and Embossed it 
with Fine Detail EP WhiteI added Micro fine Glitter, Golden Glitz
I made a triple bow with the Blue ribbon 
and added a white Snowflaketo the center of my Bow
