Poinsettia on Script

A very simple layout to show off this regal image and I let the border on the image act as one of my borders then cut a thin strip away from the image as yet another border then layered it on shimmer gold cardstock.
For the borders with the green layer I used a cardstock as thick as the gold shimmer and cut a strip about ½” less in width, taped on two gold edges and layered on the green then cut the borders.  This saved on the more expensive gold shimmer cardstock.  Didn’t think ahead but I could have cut the center out of the gold too, maybe my brain will retain that thought for next time.  The Perfect Layers tools from Perfect  Paper Crafting was used to cut the borders. Use any brand craft knife or rotary cutter for cutting.  A tutorial video can be found on the company site.
The image panel is mounted on foam tape.
