Hello My Friend!

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a bit of fun news to share with you today - I'm guest designing for the month of March with Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps! I met Sparkle about a month ago and fell in love with her line of stamps so it was an easy decision to make when I received the invite. :)

I'll be playing along with the challenges this month and the first one is punchy!

Yup... all you need to do is break out your punches and use them! I went through my stash and found a few and made this card using Cocktail Emily:

I created a little embellishment using circle and heart punches, a small button and a bit of twine. I also stamped a matching sentiment on pink cardstock and used a corner rounder punch on the corners. To finish with the punching I used an edger punch to add some dainty scalloped scallops to the bottom of the main image. Speaking of the main image, I stamped Emily in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and colored with PrismaColor pencils. I accented various portions of the image with Glossy Accents and added a dusting of glitter to the rind of the lime wedge.
