My Multi-Edge Punch Background

I just love making background with my edge punches, lots and lots of them, if you are here often, I am sure you've seen lots of my cards layered with these lace-like edges, this time I am going full swing with a 12x12 background


This layout I made is for a new challenge blog I found recently
April challenge is Black cardstock with Yellow and Fabric

Here's my take.....


as you can see, I layered lots of different edge punches on black cardstock...


and my fabric is actually from a new pair of stocking my friend bought long time ago and didn't have the guts to put them on.....


and these flowers are the result of the pair of stocking.....


more close-ups



I love this photo taken by the Hudson River with the Manhattan Skyline as backdrop...




Thanks for stopping by today!!!
