Gallery Idol Round 4: Border Stamps

Hi everyone! I'm here today to post my Gallery Idol Round 4 card. The challenge this week? Border stamps. EEEEEK! When I saw that, I sorta cringed. I only have 4 border stamp sets! WHAT? But, I had to make what I had work.

P1090716
There was a lot of heat embossing that took place with this creation. Phew! I had to try quite a few times on the black and gold stripes, because first stamping the black and then the gold offset was no easy task to get right. The deer is a die cut from my Silhouette, isn't he regal in gold? 

The flowers are WPlus9 Spring Blooms stamps and dies, and the sentiment is also from WPlus9.

Border stamps used: Simon Says Stamp Artful Borders and My Favorite Things Mod Borders.   

I really cannot express enough how grateful I am for all of you that have supported me in Gallery Idol thus far. I have been having a blast and it is a JOY to read all of your sweet comments and know that I have people supporting me with their votes. So thank you!!! Much love to you all!

Such a strong, bold design, I love the gold embossing and that there are parts with the black background and parts with the white background, just so graphically strong!
