Gettin' punchy

This latest card I CASE'd from Annie. You can see her lovely card here. I loved the layout of all the elements on the card along with the fantastic color combo. I still like Annie's card best but I liked challenging myself to use some of my punches that have been languishing in the back of my drawer.

I love that little girl punch. I also have a little boy one. I've had those for eons and McGill is the mfr. I have no idea if they're still available but I can't bear to part with mine, even though I use them so rarely.

I used Polka Dot Basics 2 as the background image for the punches, the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from Enjoy the Ride, and then the flourishes from Fancy Flourishes. The ribbon is from a Love, Elsie line that I picked up ages ago. I'm thinking this would be a good card for my DD10 to give to a friend - it's "young" and colorful, just what little girls like, right? :)

Have a great day!

GREAT use of those punches Jennifer! I have many underused punches too. You've managed to make an adorable card here with yours!

BTW! thanks for your lovely words on my blog :) Wouldn't it be nice to live near each other just to have craft sessions? I would love that. It will be so much fun. I will try and make tutorials and put them up on my blog for you :)
