The left border is my first attempt at polished stone. I used an old shoulder pad as the applicator. It worked great! Blue is my favorite color, and this technique allowed me to go as blue as I wanted!! I also used cheap photo paper as my glossy base for the polished stone. I have to make 50 of these so I had to be economical. Also, the Ballet Blue CS that is shown as the torn edge was used economically because the strip is less than an inch wide, but I glued it underneath the very edge of the polished stone and you'd never know I conserved anything!! The ribbon is some cheap, but sparkly stuff I found at Wally World.(aka Wal----)

Thanks you guys!!!!! I loved this set and wheel from the moment I saw it, and I wanted to use it for my Christmas card this year. It has limitless uses though, so it makes me feel great in my decisions in using it that you all like it as much as I do. This is the first thing I did with it, but when I was finished I felt like I had achieved what I wanted. The lace up thing is simple. I just ran the mono down the back of the polished stone strip and then wrapped it around. I gave my son's teacher one of these cards, and four mom's were loving it and have signed up for workshops!!! YIPPEEE!!!
