Get Well Wishes/A little bit of Magic

Today was our bi-monthly stamp camp and this is the first card that I made using the stamping 411 sketch.  This was the first time doing the border with the crimper and I thought for the first try I actually did pretty good.  It is really a lot easier than it looks.  I took a piece of Lovely lilac about a inch width by 12" long.  Using the pinking hearts border punch I punched one edge of the 1" strip.  Then I ran it through the crimper.  I then turned the oval over and along the edge of the oval I applied adhesive.  I then started going around the edge of the oval with the Lovely lilace strip and pleated when necessary to make the curves.  That is it.  So easy.  I know there are some tutorials out there, but I could not find them today, so I just made do.  The stamp set is called "A little bit of Magic", and the cardstock colors are: Lovely lilac, Pale Plum, Lavender Lace, Whisper White, and certainly celery. Ribbon is 1/4" grosgrain certainly clelery.  Used markers for the coloring.

Thanks for looking!
