FOSTV-Use a Border Punch

Good Morning! Hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend.

Today's challenge at FOSTV located at the Home of Speedy TV is to use a border punch. I haven't used my Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch many times (if ever) so I thought I would get it out and use it for this challenge

This week we are giving away this awesome stamp set to a lucky winner, Sending Happy Thoughts.

If you join our Friends of Speedy TV challenge, you have a chance of winning it. Just go to Home of Speedy TV,  look for our challenge and upload with the inlinkz tool. This week is challenge #12.

My card is using the stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Relax A Bit. I stamped my image twice, colored, cut out and popped up the other. Glossy accents were added to the roses.  I just made my sentiment tab using the scissors to cut the end shape. My recipe is below.
