Use Your Stuff - Favorite Punches

Hello Friends and Welcome Back!
I'm always so excited to start a new week in Blogland ...
to see what you've all created to inspire me and hopefully I can
create something that will inspire you in return.

Today I have a creation to share that I've created
for the new challenge over on the Use Your Stuff challenge blog.
 Beth is hostess today and she's asked us create with the theme ...


 With all the dies I have collected over the past couple of years, I must
confess that my punches have been horribly neglected!  This challenge gave me the opportunity
to blow the dust off of them.  I've actually decided to choose only one punch to create with today ... and that punch is the Martha Stewart 'Floral Vine' punch.

I must tell you that today's card was 'pieced together' by using up some snippets
that have been laying on my work table.  The K& Co. design paper is a scrap left over from
making tea cups for the local Tea Shoppe, the frames are snippets from the 
Impression Obsession 6-in-1 Frame (#DIE242) left over from a project where I used the
larger frames and the double stitched grosgrain ribbon is all that was left
on a ribbon spool ... whew!~ just made it!!!
OH!  And the lady bug was cut from the little bitty piece of designer paper that I used 
for my background panel ... I just happen to spot him when I was tossing 
the remnant into the trash!

I hope you'll share your FAVORITE PUNCHES creation with us at the USE YOUR STUFF blog.

Till next time, thanks for stopping by and have an awesome week ahead!
As always . . .

What a pretty, pretty card and a great use of all the left overs!! The punch is fabulous and I think I just might have shows off beautifully with the paper and ribbon!!

Wow, look at that paper! So bright and fun! The border punch you used is one of my favorites, too, but I can't think when was the last time I used it. You do inspire me! I do still use a punch every now and then, though. Your card is a breath of fresh air to get me going this morning!

Beautiful use of the boldly printed paper, Dar! I had not thought of using a white border with this type of paper! Looks fantastic! Hugs, de
