Dies and Punches at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Dies and/or Punches
I know how you all love your punches and dies so expecting a good turnout for this challenge.
We have two sponsors this week for you:
Crafty Sentiments - prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice
The Paper Shelter - prize of a $20 gift certificate

I was lucky enough to be able to use an image from Crafty Sentiments for my inspiration project.

 Isn't this teddy just so cute, peeking out from behind that present.  I coloured him with promarkers and used my blending pen to try and add some texture to his fur.  I then used one of my Marianne Creatable dies to cut him out.  A touch of distress ink was added around the image before removing from the die.  For my matting I used light green coredinations.  The paper is a really old one from Papermania.  I added the green ribbon and bow in a criss cross pattern over the card.  Thought it mirrored the large present in the image.  Some little green stars and punched out corners finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to upload your entries.  The design team have produced some wonderful creations for your inspiration too.
