Border three done (and how I got there in photos)

 First the zig zag border, then the stems and the leaves.
 Then cut the 'eyebrow' shape off the freezer aper templates.
 Place them with some glue stick.
 Outer petal.
 Inner petal and so on.
And then it is done. Never let me do four borders the same again please. Just stop me!
I always find it interesting to see things in black and white to see the true value of the colours I have used.

  6. You have out done yourself. This is gorgeous. Borders all the same do get boring to do, but the work pays off in Spades when you can struggle through them. Just stunning. Chris
