PTI Make It Monday: Creating Backgrounds with Border Dies

I look forward to learning new things from PTI's Make It Monday videos every Monday and this week, I decided to take the challenge.  The project needed to include at least one PTI product and feature a border die to make a background.  I used the Eyelet Lace Border Die and cut strips in yellow, red and turquoise.  I adhered them in an alternating fashion so they interlocked together.  I inked up the monkey, lollipop and sentiment from a Dandelion Designs cling set called "So Sweet" and colored the images with Copics.  I added some "sugar" to the lollipop with Stickles and also used some in alternating holes of the lace border for additional bling.

Sometimes taking challenges pushes me to do things I normally may not have thought of.    New Year's resolution #27:  Try New Things - check!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for the beginning of Sister Stamps new releases!
