Punched and Die Cut!

Hello bloggy friends.
I hope this Sunday finds you well and happy?
Well, as it is Sunday that means there is another new challenge over at the Totally Tilda challenge blog.
Firstly though, I would just like to say thank you for all your wonderful entries on the last challenge.
It always makes it hard to choose a winner/top 3 but that's part of the fun!
Remember too that we are choosing a Guest Designer from all the entries that added GDT after their name so don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and see if you were chosen.
Don't worry if you weren't chosen this time - we will be choosing another GDT soon - look out for the next GDT posting!
So what are we going to tempt you with this time??
Well the new challenge is:

From now on I will be showing you a complete card to mark the beginning of the new challenge at Totally Tilda and then I will be making a new card for the Midway Reminder.  So, now you get two for the price of one!!  What a bargain!
So here is the card I made for the new challenge:
I had this image all stamped up for a while now so thought I'd use her for this challenge.
The image is coloured with my promarkers - actually I have used the new Limited Edition Spring Collection for most of the colouring - such lovely soft subtle shades and such gorgeous names too.
If you haven't seen them why not pop in to the Letraset site and have a look at the new colours as well as a wealth of other items you may find useful!
I have used Distress Ink (Spun Sugar) around the edge of the white card to soften the edges and the green background DP is punched with a Stampin Up edge punch.
Me lovely flowers are all from the wonderful folk at Wild Orchid - such fabulous service and wow what a choice!!!  That sweet polka dot ribbon is one of a NEW RANGE at Crafty Ribbons - you really should pop in and have a look at what they have to offer - trust me - you won't be disappointed!!!
The sentiment is one of a set of die cuts that I've had in my stash for ages.  I added Distress Ink to the background of the sentiment as it looked to stark in white.
So there you go my lovely peeps - hope you like what I've shown you.
I can't wait to see what fabulous works you all come up with for this challenge.
Have fun!
