Fun Birthday Card

So I wanted to try out something a little different with the Laurel Lace Border Die that I received from Top Dog Dies.  I wanted to see if I could just create an edge on a piece of paper instead of making a separate border like the die is intended to do.  Guess worked!  I simply stopped rolling my Big Shot before it reached the end of the die and then reverse rolled it back out.  This is what I created with it.
 A very fun and bright birthday card!  I used the Sunday Afternoon stack by DCWV and the stamp is from My Craft Spot's Chalkboard Sentiments set.  The twine wrapped around the top is Trendy Twine's Tickled with Teal.

Here is a closeup of that beautiful bottom edge!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
