So sad about the border...I understand perfectly because the same is happening to mine. Notice that I am using the other one with more successs. Still it does work on dp, so maybe I won't call up Martha after all.
So glad you persisted Shirley, this is a really pretty card for your swap. Beautiful framing and love your colours. TFS

Wow, my anti-P I N K goggles are getting a workout here!!! Maybe your MS punch needs to be sharpened? Whenever I have a problem with a punch not punching CS, I'll get a piece of foil from the kitchen and punch several times. Seems to work for me. Also, if it tends to stick in the middle of punching something, you might try punching several times with a piece of waxed paper.

Oooo...I have the same problem with this punch! It is maddening! But I am glad you stuck with it, because that is the perfect edge with that CB folder! Sweet! Love the shape the sentiment is on. Is that a new nestie? Yummy! Love it Shirl. XXXOOO

Really a lovely card!!! I share your frustration with the MS punch!!! I thought it was just mine!! I'm sorry that you and Pat have trouble with that punch - but I am relieved to that I did not just get a bum punch. I thought it was just me!
The card is lovely - so I'm glad you stuck with it!! Mine wont even cut cleanly through foil , which I tried to sharpen!! Punches !! sometimes.......... sigh!
