Hope your enjoying your day so far!  I don’t know about you but I sometimes overlook the border stamps in stamp sets.  Look at this border stamp it is so beautiful!

For this card I used the Simply Elegant Suite.  This suite includes the Elegantly Said Bundle, Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper and the Simply Elegant Trim.

I did add in some Gold Foil and the Metallic Pearls. 

Below you will find the Card cuts, Instructions and Supply list.
