Feeling Punchy

Good morning everyone and a happy weekend to you all! And it feels so good to get up and see the sunshine everywhere - long may it continue!

There is a brand new challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme for this challenge is "Feeling Punchy".  We want to see you get out your punches - not your dies- but good ol' fashioned punches.  It can be border punches, squeeze punches or lever punches, as long as we can see something that has come from a punch on your card!!  Here is my card:


I have used the adorable Ashley with Rose image from our sponsors this week who are DigiDarla Designs:


I have coloured Ashley with my Copics and Prisma Pencils.  For the layout of the card I used a sketch from the challenge at Crafty Sentiments.  My Papers are all from Nitwits from the Gratitude Collection which has to be one of my favourites!  One die has crept in which I thought was ok because I have used punches, I used my Spellbinders to cut and mat the image.  I cut Ashley out and then mounted her with foam pads.  I have embossed the background with a Craft Concepts embossing folder.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I have used a Martha Stewart border punch for the border.  The flowers have been made using three different Woodware flower Punches and the branch/fern was made with a punch but I am not sure if that is Woodware or not. The bling is from my stash.  If you pop over to Card Makin' Mamas you can see for yourself the fab creations the rest of the DT have designed.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Sketch
Pattie's Creations - Recipe
Aud Sentiments - Any Sentiment
Digi Doodles - Let's Go Spotty
Southern Girls - Dying to Diecut or Punch
Crafts and Me - Fabulous Flowers
The Paper Shelter - Bling it On

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine wherever you are! A big welcome and thank you to my newest followers!  I am going to prepare for our BBQ and get some scorecards printed out for Eurovision lol!!  Thanks for looking and I will see you all tomorrow - take care xx
