Word of the Week #13!

Today's word of the week is......

limbus:  a border distinguished by color or structure
      
(they gave the example "esp. the marginal region of the cornea of the eye by which it is continuous with the sclera"...but for card-making purposes we'll leave that part out and stick with the rest of the definition!)



Here is my sample...my "limbus" is an old retired Stampin Up border!  Other stamp sets on this are Holiday Tree, Papertrey Ink, and a Flourishes set from The Angel Company.

I did add another border, too...a furfuraceous border of coarse silver glitter (furfuraceous is WOW12!).  This card also fits 2 other challenges at SCS this week...Roxie's sketch challenge, and Betty's color challenge of Real Red, Always Artichoke, and Chocolate Chip.  Don't tell Betty, but my "greens" don't look very artichoke-y, hee! 

Also used a gift from my friend Kris (krischir)...she sent me an old piece of window screen and ordered me to ink it up!  That's the first pattern on the "cream" piece of paper!  Isn't that so cool?

Now YOU go and have fun with the WOW!  Be sure to link back here with your card/blog post, or upload you card at Splitcoaststampers using the keyword "WOW13".
