This week's card challenge on the Mothers & Daughters challenge blog is to create a border of some sort and use it on your card.

For my border, I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a pretty scalloped edge on my yellow strip of cs, and then layered on a strip of white cs and a piece of dp by Imaginisce. For some extra pop, I attached some pretty buttons from my stash.

I used chick with tulip from Serendipity stamps for my image, and colored it in with copic markers. (photo below) I used my oval Nestabilities to cut out the image, and layered it onto a scalloped oval to coordinate with my border.

If you'd like to play along, make a border and use it on a card. Post a link to your card on this post on the MDC challenge blog and you will be entered to win a fabulous prize!

You probably are looking at my marker colors and saying to yourself, "I don't remember copic carrying those two yellows on the end." Well, you'd be right. The two yellows on the end are my own recipe. I really like YR21, and have always been frustrated that there aren't any lighter yellows in the same shade to blend it with. What's a girl to do? Well, this girl purchased 2 empty sketch markers and a YR21 & blender refill and custom mixed her own colors. I used all three of the YR21's on my chick, and am very happy with the result. I went a head and made a couple of other colors too, which I will show you at a later date. I firmly believe that a crafter can never have too many colors! LOL!
