I love the square format with the scallop border along the shorter front that she used, and it reminded me that I hadn't tried that slit punch border technique yet. I found this internet image and went with those colors. I printed it off on regular copy paper, clear embossed it and adhered it to white cardstock with my xyron, then trimmed and ticket punched it.
The card base is Night of Navy, with a piece of Blush Blossom adhered to the back panel. I added a border to that back Blush layer by using the negative piece of scalloped Navy. The card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.
This is a birthday card for my husband's niece, who's on Western Michigan University's Equestrian Team.

You wound up making a beautifully enhanced image from this internet freebie! Embossed--what a great idea! I love the scalloped border with the eyelets and the letters on that pretty ribbon. But most of all I'm absolutely smitten with the On The Spot/Spot On background! That's so cool! A definite file for future reference. The subtle sponging on the edges adds to the soft, dreamy look, lending itself well to the theme of the card. Perfect for your equestrian niece-in-law!
