Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Beautiful Borders

Hi everyone,

and Happy Friday.  I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.
Our granddaughters are coming for a sleep over tomorrow night.
 I haven't seen them since they returned from Disney World over the March break
 so we have some catching up to do.

Today starts a new challenge at
 and our lovely Wendy has chosen the theme "Beautiful Borders".      

My card share is a birthday card I made for one of my granddaughters, who like me, is a fan of The Hunger Games.
She has read the trilogy and is eagerly awaiting the third movie Mockingjay that's due out later this year.  

I've coloured Krista Smiths  Princess Honor  from Saturated Canary with Copics and went with a "Catching Fire"  theme.

I pulled out a lot of oldies when making this card.  The inside circle is cut using SB Large pinking circles.  I then glued on the metal beaded circles and attached a gold rhinestone to the center of each one.  The flowers are from WOC. I finally got to use the brown and green colours that I just had to have a year ago:)   Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and SB Sprocket die overlap the outside frame. The metal piece is from a visit to Buffalo Stamps.  The wooden clocks are 7 Gypsies...and Graphic 45.  Sentiment created in Word.  Shape is Go Kreate Half XXL Square Frame Frilly #10.  The inner layers are cut by hand.   If I haven't lost you by now there is one more very old tool I use to draw the inner is by Puzzle Mates and they are called Magic Matter Disk Set.   They are round metal disks with a hole in the put your pencil in, align the disk with the die and trace.....easy as that. All this is because I have been unable to find the XL dies that match #10. DP - Graphic 45 Couture

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Divas by Design - Flower Power
Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Neglected Dies
4Crafty Girls Challenge #14 - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by today.
