Fresh, Springy and.....punchy :o)


This simple fresh looking card was made for todays challenge posted in my 'Punch Art' swap on SCS. Every Tuesday we have a new challenge and partecipants have until midnight on Thursday to make and show their creations...we call this T-DAY ♥
This week's hostess is April and she challenged us to make a card using the criterias listed below....I encourage you to check her beautiful card here:
http://aprilsalley.blogspot.com/2012/02/just-little-punchy.html

In April's own words:
"...I would like you to take a non-border punch and use it to make a border. Think out of the box...it doesn't need to be a traditional border, but some sort of divider between papers, cards stocks, or layers..."


I started selecting a couple pieces from my designer papers scrap pile and came up with these two, just perfect for what I had in mind....


I thought this simple card looked simply cute as is, I even finally got to ink that cute stamp I had like forevahhh.....but wait to see it with all the lil punched out circles serving as a cute frame for this sweet lil flowery immie.....


See?? It completely transformed the look of the pretty card  ♥
I just added some stickles to the
flowers' crown to make them sparkly and voila'!....Card is now completed...
.... and I LOVE IT!!!


Thank YOU for stopping by and check this out....I hope you like it too ....
I, for sure, will never look at my scrap pile the same way as before discovering
this, and many other ways to create with some useful punches....♥
Thanks for visiting...have a GREAT blessed day on this LEAP DAY of the year!!!
