Punches and die cuts

Good Morning! today is the start of another Challenge over at Digi -Choosday and the theme this week is Punches and Die cuts. Why not pop along and enter the challenge you can win some
fab prizes!

I've decided my pens needed a rest this week  so have only used them to color the centres of the flowers on my sentiment and used papers and a sentiment Polka Doodles Sugar Plum Daisy CD.

 I have made the card by folding the Dotty lilac paper in half then die cutting it with a spellbinder die - You can find clear instructions on how I made it here. I then used same die on the flowery paper to make the top of the card. I used a X-cut punch along 2 strips of the darker spotty paper and fan-folded this to make a rosette which holds my sentiment. A butterfly from the same cd is just hovering over the rosette. The button was made using an epiphany button maker from Crafter's Companion and more of the darker shade of dotty paper. This was placed on a ribbon bow and used as the stopper for the card.
