Crafty Cardmakers - spotlight on punches


Last week's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers was a recipe challenge - use orange or yellow, an animal or fish and stickers or a punch.  This week, our spotlight is on punches and some of the DT have also followed the recipe, although if you want to play the spotlight week, you don't have to follow the recipe if you don't want to.  That probably made no sense - I have my boys asking constant questions, squabbling and pestering for food in the background... oh the joys of the school holidays!

I've used the sweet 'hello! ladybird' image from Di's Digi Downloads, available here, coloured with promarkers.  The papers are Making Memories, with coredinations cardstock.  I've used punches to make my flower and leaves - woodware daisy, x-cut flower and woodware leaf (I think it's actually called 'grass' if I remember right) - I then inked the edges of the flowers and leaves with pink ink.  MS doily lace trim punch used to cut the border.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
