Friends and Die Cuts

Good Monday morning!  I am back again with another Monday challenge at Speedy TV.  Isn't this the best way to start a Monday?  If you are keeping track, today's challenge is number 31 and is all about using die cuts!!  I opted to use my Spellbinders dies because I love them so much.  Mark's Finest Papers has a nice selection of Spellbinders dies available in their store.  One of the things I like best about Spellbinders dies is my ability to emboss and then stencil as well.  I used the stencil option here to highlight the decoration around the frame and some bits on the castle. 

For my card today, I sponged in a sunset backdrop for my castle and then stamped in a most appropriate sentiment.  I finished my card in an unusual way for me.  I bound the edge with some eyelets and organdy ribbon.  I like how it ended up looking fairy tale-esque!

As always, Mark's Finest Papers is offering a stamp set to one lucky participant.  This week it is Wild Horses.  What a beautiful set!  Check it out below:

Such a beautiful card! The lovely soft colors in the sky really show off the castle perfectly. Looks like a wonderful album cover to me ;)

I like the sponging color & the stenciling. Takes a lot of patience, time & a steady hand to do that amt of stenciling all the way around.
