Monday Morning

Here is a card to start the week with a few challenges.
Sketch and Stash - Sketch - There are several new things here, the flower, border punch and word window punch
Roses on Paper - Pink, brown & cream
I made a little discovery today regarding my Stampin' Up word window punch. I chose a very small sentiment from Papermania and found out that I could have reduced the length of the punched shape, by squeezing part way through the card, keeping the centre part of the shape uncut, then moving the punch along in order to cut the final part... ending with a shorter window. Ingenious!
There are probably loads of folk out there who already knew this, but I felt quite pleased that I found it out for myself!

  5. Chrissie - I love your Tilda image and you've done a superb job of colouring her outfit. I bet you were always in the crayolas and felt tips when you taught at school!!!

    Love the little 'stamens' in the middle of your flower too - it really makes the flower pop - and that you've added the beads too. Can you tell me what the name of the punch is that you've used for this. I love it.
