Best Wishes Border Card

The theme for the challenge at SweetStamps this week is "Borders" so I used an unusual (& unbranded) stamp I picked up at a garage sale for 50 cents. It looks like half of a border so I stamped it in both directions, end to end and I'm actually happy with the result! Both stamped images are colored with colored pencils.

The pretty butterfly stamp is from SweetStamps called "Crown Butterfly"....a favorite!
The "Best Wishes" is a cheap little generic that doesn't stamp well.
The die cut border is Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Accents" and the
 circle die cut is "Exquisite Circles".
Ivory cs is Cryogen, print is Imaginesce.
Rhinestones are KaiserCraft "Ice Blue".
Ribbon and twine...from my stash.
Challenges: - #100 Anything Goes
