Stretch Your Dies, Day 6

For me, one of the best things about the Online Card Classes is to look at supplies that have been long unused (or never used--horrors!)  I was inspired to pull out a border die that reminded me of a trellis.  I thought it went well with this small watercolored piece.  (Derwent Inktense and Water Color Pencils)

The front looked too plain so I stamped a wood grain background 

I cut some strips to provide a pop of color to show through my "trellis."  Depending upon the recipient, I will either stamp a small sentiment or just write a note on the narrow inside.

 I am looking forward to playing more with my border dies...they truly are a challenge in my stash!

Thanks for taking a look!
