Punches and Dies

Good morning to you all! A big welcome to Teresa my latest follower and thank you for joining me!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter following our 3 week Anything Goes.  The theme for this week's challenge is Punches and Dies. Here is my card:

I have used this fabulous image called Don Quijote Y Dulcinea available here from The Paper Shelter. The papers are Basic Grey called Hello Luscious and I coloured the image with my Copics and Prismas. I used Spellbinders Large Square die to cut the image out and Large Scalloped die to mat it on.  The strip of paper across the middle has been cut with Spellbinders A2 Curved Border One but you can't really see it that well! I used a Tonic flower punch, the tag, heart and butterfly are all made with a Woodware Punch and the leaf spray is Floral Punch. Added some Stickles to the hearts and butterflies and the pearls and ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

As usual we have a fabulous prize on offer:

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Tic Tac Toe (Hearts, Die Cuts, Flowers)
Craft Room Challenge - Bingo (Butterfly, Kraft, Pearls or Gems)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Well that's it from me folks! Off to meet a friend for lunch today but first the gym!!! Thank you so much for calling by, see you tomorrow! Take care xx

Fascinating card, with all the many details and the adorable image. At first glance I thought he was a cowboy and then the clothing clued me in. I then read the post and yes a Don Quijote he is, I mean look at all those hearts:O) Love it!
