Border without a Border Die

The next few weeks are going to be very busy & I won't have much crafting or computer time.  Did get my PTI MIM card done--really fun!  I knew about this technique, but don't think I'd ever gotten around to doing it.  As soon as I saw Laurie's video, I had in mind using Snowflake Flurries. Played around with various colors & decided on red, aqua & silver--one of my newer favorites for Christmas.  My inks are Memento Love Letter & PTI Aqua Mist.  I used a strip of DCWV silver glitter paper & added dots of silver Stickles.  The tiny trio of dots is from PTI Harvest Berries & the sentiment from snowflake Flurries is black embossed.  
Luckily I found matching twine in the bottom of my storage bin.  May have to make more of these with different colors & maybe try flowers.  I did use some scraps so will enter at The Playground

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll catch up with you when I can--don't think you're forgotten.
