It's all about Punches and Dies

Just popping by today to let you know about the new challenge starting over at Forever Friends.  Our challenge theme is a nice easy one as we are asking you to use items that most of use quite regularly:
use punches and/or dies

We have two great sponsors for this challenge:

Just pop over to Forever Friends to find out full details and to enter the challenge.  The design team have been very busy producing some gorgeous inspiration projects for the challenge.  

I have two cards to share with you:

I have used a fab image from Michelle Perkett for this card.  I coloured it with promarkers, cut it out using one of my dies and inked the edges.  The papers are from my scraps box.  I used a corner punch for the little corners.  Some ribbon and flowers from my stash finished the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
Little Miss Muffet - Anything goes
Sweet Stampin - Scallops
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
OSAAT - Anything goes
Robyns Fetish - Anything goes
Great Impressions - Pastel colours and/or polka dots

My second card is using a cute Forever Friends decoupage image.  The papers for this one are from Bearly Mine.  I made the flowers myself using a punch and used that fab corner punch again.  I found this sentiment is my stash and just love it.  Think it really suits the image and mean that the card could be used for several different occasions - anniversary, wedding or engagement springs to mind.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Diamonds
Ready Teddy Go - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes with sparkle
Ribbon Girl - Add flowers
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries for the challenge.
