Swimmers - Take 2


You may remember this post from last summer where I shared my swimmers COTW. When I saw the A Muse Fancy Borders clear set, I thought it would work great for this card. Well, I recently needed a card to send to my cousin for her divisional swim meet - so this was the perfect opportunity to finally test out my theory! So here I used the same basic design, but replaced the ribbon "lanes" and the "finish line" layer with stamped borders! I changed up the colors a bit as well (her team color is purple). Of course the new A Muse stitched ribbon would be great for the lane dividers too, but I just love how *easy* this was!
