Notes for Dani

Today I have a great & simple project for ya. I made this note board for my BFF's 12 year old daughter, Dani.
Here it is:

I used the Serenity Signs of Spring Specialty Die-Cut paper as my base. To pop the swirly border, I spritz it with Tattered Angels Shimmer Mist in Tiger Lily. That gave it a pretty shimmery sheen: (sorry couldn't get a good pic :(

As you can tell, I threaded ribbon through each hole for added detail.

More deets:
 I used my Gypsy to create all of the elements. I cut the frame on my Cricut from the Storybook cart from the Prima Urban Cosmos DP. I faux stitched the edges & distressed them. In the middle of each flower medallion, I added a Dew Drop from the Orchid collection. I welded & cut out her name & adhered that with foam adhesive. I stamped "NOTES" onto the DP & placed her name so that the O in "NOTES" would encircle the dew drop over the I.
My idea is to make this a magnetic board by adding craft tin to the back, but maybe she'd like to do something else with it so I'll wait for her to decide on how she wants to use it.

 If she decides to go magnetic, have I got some faaaaab accessories to show ya---> next time! Same bat time, same bat channel!

Phew, thanks for sticking around for all the deets! Don't forget to get all the goodies for this project at the YMH Store---> HERE!
