Crafty Secrets Challenge - Punches

(Ooops ... I was supposed to tag this to post on Tuesday ... oh well, it's been a long day and I messed up ... so you get to see this post late Monday night .... sorry!)

Today's Crafty Secrets challenge over on SCS is hosted by "yours truly" and I've asked the gang to be creative in using their punches along with their Crafty Secrets product!! Why not come play along ... it's great fun!!!

I have seen SO many awesome ideas on everyone's blogs lately using corner punches, border punches and even images punches. I can't wait to see what these talented ladies come up with!!

On my card I have used the ever popular Martha Stewart doily lace border punch. My main image panel is made by cutting a 2-3/4" square piece of cs then centering it in the punch on all four sides. My image & Happy Birthday sentiment are from the Crafty Secrets Glamour Girls set and the other sentiment is by Hero Arts. I've used ocean green vellum with peach satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Hero Arts gems and Prima flowers. It's difficult to see in the photo (you can click on the image to enlarge) but I used a ZIG ocean green marker and did faux stitching across the bottom which is actually on the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by ... hope to have a few more things to share with you later in the day. Happy Stamping!!
