Snowflake Border Oops


I made this card for the Memory Box Outside the Box Challenge.

When I went in to get the link I realized I had not followed the challenge.

Oops!

So I used the same idea and did this.


I can't believe I missed that very important part of the challenge!

All is well because I changed the sentiment and I can share this with 
Marcia's Merry Monday Challenge too.

Do check out the wonderful inspiration from the DT and galleries at both challenges!

Those snowflakes sparkle IRL.  Couldn't get the camera to see it.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Two pretty cards. I like the one with the blue background best, since blue is my favorite color. :)
Have a great day.

Christine Alexander said...

I've done the oops and posted, so easy to miss some of the most important details :)
love both cards but really like the sparkle with the silver snowflake chain.

Brenda said...

Both cards are equally beautiful Bonnie! I had to laugh because I have done that too. Not sure how I do it, but leave it to me! So I was happy that I'm not the only one who does stuff like this too. lol Hugs, Brenda

Susan said...

I get so annoyed with myself when I do things like that - have a card all ready for a challenge and realize I missed one of the challenge requirements! But this way you have two done for your stash for this year's Christmas! Love them both, even though the effect is so different by changing colour!

These are both beautiful, Bonnie! I was just gifted that die and love how you used them! The glitter paper looks fabulous with this. I may just have to case these!
