Mo' Challenge # 23




Have Some Punch!

 
 Cathy's challenge for us in Mo's Challenge this week was to use at least three punches. This was probably the easiest challenge yet. I have sooo many punches!





I love this image! It's "Soaking Up the Joy", one of the first of Mo's images that I bought, and it still makes me happy to look at it.
She's colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and mounted on two circles cut out using Nesties and my trusty Cuttlebug. The DP is Basic Grey, and the CS is SU!'s Mint and Mauve, both of which, unfortunately, are retired. The punches I used are all from Martha Stewart; Hydrangea Blossoms, Branch and Doily Border. I also used a small hole punch on the Mauve scalloped, embossed panel.
It's tied with a mint satin ribbon from Ribbons and Bows, Oh My!. The yellow roses are from Prima, and the pink flower stems are from Wild Orchid Crafts in England. Check them out....wonderful flowers and other do-dads, and great prices! Even the shipping isn't bad. A few pearls and some tiny beads and it was done

Have fun with this challenge! Can't wait to see all your creations!
Thanks for stopping by!
Elaine
