Sweet Stampin' - punches & dies

I'm back with my second card for today, my DT card for Sweet Stampin' where our challenge is 'punches & dies'.  We're sponsored by Pollycraft and our lucky winner will receive 5 digi images, and there are loads of fab ones to choose from :o)



Ooh isn't it annoying trying to get half decent photos at the moment?!  My lovely MIL has got me a light box for Christmas, so hopefully that will help - wish I could have it now though!

The super cute image is Dexter the Penguin - snow cone, I'll have to use this image for Dex's card I think :o)  He's coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers, with lots of glamour dust for sparkle.  The papers are Dovecraft, another pack I'd forgotten all about, and the cardstock is from Papermill Direct.  I've added some punched snowflakes and pearls, and used a nellie snellen die to mount the image... I don't use this die very often as for some reason it doesn't cut well in my big shot - it seems to struggle to go through at all, and will only cut certain cardstock.  Anyway, I thought I'd persevere this time as the image & sentiment fit perfectly in it.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm looking forward to watching the X Factor with hubby tonight, I thought it was a shame Craig went last week though.  I'm also looking forward to getting my littlest darling to bed, he's been a right little monkey today!  He found a bright orange ink pad earlier and splodged it all over the kitchen table - such a mess!  Wine and chocolate needed tonight I think!  Hope you all have a good evening whatever you're doing :o)

    Re ribbon, I've had that ribbon for a while and can't remember where it was from. But I do get most ribbon from Sew Sweet or the Ribbon Girl, you could try there.
