A flower for you

A quick post from me before having a shower and heading out. The weather looks a bit better today, can even see a glimpse of sun. Popped into the Range yesterday and managed to get another A4 pack of Henbury Lane along with a lovely Christmas pack of papers called Enchanted Christmas, some ribbon and a small pack of Core'dinations. Haven't bought much lately so thought it was time for a little spend. So many gorgeous new Sugar Nellies I like and of course the sneak peeks of the new LOTV stamps. Resisting so far though. Talking of sneak peeks I'll be showing you the New Crafter's Companion stamps from Tuesday coloured with the fab new Spectrum Noir pens.

My card today is my DT card for Totally Gorjuss where the challenge is Punch or Die. Not as violent as it sounds, just use a punch and/or die. I used one of the LOTV girls along with a sheet of Papermania Summer Blooms and some Tim Holtz Core'dinations which I embossed and sanded and then punched with an MS border punch. I also used a Nestie die for the image and matting. The silver embellie I picked up at a little craft fair, 60p for 7 (odd number I know). I really like the effect behind the rose.

I would also like to enter this into the challenge of Summertime at Craft Your Days Away and free and easy at Allsorts. Have a lovely Sunday. Sun has now gone behind a cloud again but definitely feels warmer today. Yesterday was only about 15 degrees (60).

Marianne, this is such a cute card. I love the way you punched the edge then added the embossing. That paper is so pretty too.
I sure hope the sun comes out for you. We have been having record high temperatures here in Ontario. So glad to hear you had a little spending spree. Is the Christmas paper out already? Not here yet!Oh I can't wait!
