So many punches and DT call

Good Morning peeps and before I move on, I need to remind you all that there is still time to get your name on the list if you would like to be considered for our Design Team at Penny Black at Allsorts. All the details are over on the blog, so please do pop over and join in the fun. The new Design Team members will be announced at the end of the month.

Well, it's Saturday again which means it's Allsorts new challenge time and this weeks it's the lovely Fleur's turn to set the theme which is to "Use at least three different punches" on your work.

I have used this adorable image Penny Black 49-021 for goodness sake, stamped and embossed with versaine black and detail clear and coloured with Copics plus some leaves and flowers stamped around the image. The DP is Nitwits and the border punched with Martha Stewart eyelet lace. The large flowers are punched from two Marianne stencils and the leaves a Sizzix die. This card is also for the following challenge:

Secret Crafter - Anything goes

Over to Polkadoodles now where it is my turn to host this weeks theme and as I am still ashamedly addicted to this shape I would like to see Easel Cards.

I used Fairy Flutterby Gracie and papers from All Around and Everywhere CD to make an easel card. I stamped the image twice to decoupage her and coloured with Copics. Punched borders and corner using Martha Stewart eyelet lace and flowers and leaves from stash. This card is also for the following challenge:
