....Forum Challenge!

Here is the challenge this week over at Sparkles Forum Challenges.

"" PUNCH IT ""

There is not many cards that are made that don't have punch work on it some where, this could be punched border, corners, butterflies, as long as we see something punched that's good with us.

This challenge was perfect for my Shades of Blue and Green card.  I purchased some lovely K&Company flowers which was the inspiration behind my card. 

A closer look at the layers

I was really pleased with the dimension and detail of this card after applying all the leaves and flowers. 

For the "Punch It" part of my card, I used two Martha Stewart punches.  One, a border punch as you can see along the top of the dark blue textured cardstock and the second one, my favourite butterfly punch.  I hope you like it. 

Paper - Stampin Up's Certainly Celery and Brocade Blue, DCWV Textured mat stack cardstock
Ink - Stampin Up's Brocade Blue
Stamp - Hero Arts for the sentiment
Accessories - Martha Stewart border and butterfly punches, Faux pearls, Cuttlebug embossing folder and K & Company Floral Grand Adhesions.

Another challenge I'm entering my card in is The Sisterhood of Crafters - Flower Power
Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations
