Make it Monday #139 Stamped Square Frames

Good afternoon fellow crafters! I need to make this post short and sweet as I am headed off to work soon! I have a busy weekend ahead of me and wanted to share my card with you before I ran out of time for this weeks Make it Monday Challenge! Dawn McVey has challenged us to create a Stamped Square frame this week. Her cards are always so beautiful! Here is my card for the challenge:

I love Dawn's Boutique Borders stamp sets! There are so unique and versatile, so I decided to use Boutique Borders: Sympathy stamp set to create my Stamped Frame. I stamped my border in Soft Suede ink from Stampin' Up and cut of the lined border part off of the stamped area. I used the Pretty Peonies Stamp Set to cut out some Peonies and stamped those with Stampin' Up's Gumball Green, Cherry Cobler, and Primrose Petals. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments Birthday stamp set. I embossed the Cherry Cobler cardstock on my card with the Paper Studios A2 Quatrefoil embossing folder.

That's it! I have to admit this card came together pretty quickly actually, took me about 30 minutes or so, and I really love the Cherry Cobler, Primrose Petals, and Kraft Cardstock together! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
