  3. Kim this is a really pretty card, I love the scallop border at the bottom. What a good color combo too!! Thanks again for hangin with us at A La Card Monkey!!


  4. Thank you ladies, for stopping by, and for saying such nice things. I have to watch myself with the layered borders, as I can get carried away (there was actually another layer on this card and I decided against it...It was a white layer)
    Happy Stampin'!

  5. Hi Kim,
    You left a comment on my blog so I wanted to say Hi and answer your questions... the Christmas tree is made with a half circle that was cut at 5 1/4". Hope that helps!
