What's the Scoop?

Supplies:  CS: (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo) SU, (black) Pacon; Stamps:  Purple Onion Designs; Ink: Memento; IP: PTI; Punches: (border) Martha Stewart, (1 3/8" square) EK Success; Gems: Doodlebug; Copics: RV06, RV34, E33, E35; Twine: Found  
I accidentally entered a card for the Moxie Fab Beautiful Borders Challenge the other day. It was meant for the stamping challenge but I hit some weird button combo on my keyboard and got transported to the border challenge instead.  Very weird.  So I figured I'd actually enter a card for real in the Border Challenge.


I started out with one idea for using the Martha Stewart ribbon threader border punch but ended up doing something completely different with it - and I think this came out far better than my original idea would have!  I'm loving bright colours these days and have just replenished my Stampin' Up cardstock supply.  At the end of last year I ordered their sampler packs and now that I know what colours I'm using most I ordered packs of individual colours.  There's a big stack of rainbow goodness on my desk at the moment! Just need to find it a home...

Your border looks like a film strip...very cute...and I'll promise to not tell Luis about your shopping habit if you don't tell Pat about mine (although I think they both know ;)!!
