Anything Goes ... With Fancy Borders at OSAAT

Hello to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  Thanks for dropping by to visit.   Hope all you UK mums get thoroughly spoiled on this Mothering Sunday.  Well the snow eventually disappeared yesterday.  In fact once the thaw started it  actually happened very quickly but it was bitterly cold and carried on with snow and hail showers most of the day but didn't lay at all, thank goodness.  Unfortunately it is snowing again this morning although not so heavily today.

Mr Blogger is really playing me up and over the last few days it is not allowing me to leave comments.  Rather, I can type out the comment and press the enter button but then nothing happens.  I can reload, retype  but still nothing. This is happening on the majority of blogs but not all so if you have had a comment from it is a miracle.  I just wanted to let you know that I am really visiting your blogs but not able to leave my comments!   I will keep trying.

Please scroll down if you  are looking for my Christmas Card Club entry.

It's time for OSAAT Challenge #257 which is to use Fancy Borders.  So get out all your dies and punches and see what you come up with.

My Card

7" square base card - Anne Marie Designs
Sentiment - "Just Between Friends" from Stitchy Stamps
white card stock - Papermania
Pink pearlescent card stock - Pennies Worth
A2 Bracket Borders One - Spellbinders
Oval Bliss - Spellbinders
Beautiful Borders - Our Daily Bread Designs
Ribbon and pearls - from Stash

Apart from die cutting all the pieces this card just made itself.  The Just Between Friends sentiment pack has five great sentiments and some graphics too so well worth taking a look in the store.  We would love you to pop over to the blog and see what the DT have produced and if you want to join in you can win a coupon to spend in the store.

Well that's all from me today.  Keep warm and well!!

Entered into:
Creative Moments  : Anything Goes with a sentiment
Di's Digi Designs : Use 2 or more dies.

Had a peek at this beauty when hunting for the CCC post, and had to come back for a closer look. A marvelous use of those splendid SB curved borders, as this is such an elegant & rich card. Love the color choices too. I have the same problem with Blogger, in that I am not always certain that my comment gets published. Don't always have time to go back to double check. So good luck.TFS & Hugs

Good evening Christine, I absolutely LOVE your stunning card.
We have snow on the hills we see out of the Kitchen window but I certainly would not be happy to see it down at this level.
