Daring cardmakers challenge

b'day card (21)

b'day card (21) close up

This is the first time I’ve entered the daring cardmakers challenge but when I saw the theme was ‘get punchy with it’ I had to get involved.  As you know I love my punches and use them on almost every card I make.  For today’s card I used my stamping bella image called ‘cuppacakeabella’ and coloured her with my promarkers, adding stickles to the frosting on the cake.  The paper was a magazine freebie and the cs is from the papermill shop.  I used my circle nesties to cut out the image and the gorgeous ribbon was recycled from a gift I received.  The sentiment was created on the pc and I cut it out with my SU oval punches.  The decorative edges on the paper were cut with my new(ish) MS doily lace punch (from dies to die for).  The flowers were cut with my small EK success retro flower punch and the adhesive pearls are kanban. 

Thanks for all your good wishes yesterday regarding my new DT positions :)  I hope I can deliver the goods now lol!  Thanks for stopping by today.

A big welcome to the Daring Cardmakers - I'm glad you've found us at last - hope you're going to stick around and join in with more of our dares. Your card is delightful and that doily lace punch is one I've been hankering for but haven't got my sticky mitts on yet!
