Floral borders - Love from Lizi August kit

Hello crafty friends. My August Love from Lizi card kit arrived a few days ago and I was eager to ink up the small floral stamps. I intended to create a wreath but changed my mind after seeing the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I simply added a strip of Scott removable tape across my card panel and then stamped my borders using several stamps from the stamp set in the kit and Catherine Pooler inks. I decided to create two versions to accommodate some of the fabulous scripty sentiments from the stamp set, so I created one card with a slanted border and one with a horizontal border. After I was happy with my stamped borders, I removed the tape and stamped the sentiments using black Versafine ink and my MISTI. To finish up, I trimmed my panels down, adhered them to my card bases and added a sprinkle of sequins from the kit.

For this first card, I followed the FMS sketch.

For my second card, I created a horizontal border towards the bottom of my panel.

I'm linking up my first card at:
