PUNCHED into Just Magnolias?

Just Magnolias Friday! And today is a PUNCH! Yes... the challenge is to use a punch on your card... border punch, flower punch what ever just use a punch on your card or project. Pretty easy there huh?

Well I knew I wanted to start off with a new Magnolia Stamp I had gotten... the new Spring Open Gate. Love all the flowers on the gate, I then and perfect for one of my older Tilda's with the basket of flower don't you think? I stamped her first, then masked her and stamped the gate over her to create a scene. They are colored with my Copics, and high lighted with a white gel pen.
Then my card - a white card stock is used for the base, then the papers are gorgeous sparkle bling papers from My Minds Eye Home Stack. Every page in the huge stack has glitter on it. Love it! I sewed down the floral peach pattern, then used the dotted paper as a mat for my image, then behind that a white card stock  PUNCHED with the Martha Stewart Lattice Border and Corner Punch. Love this set! For more punches, I used the Large and Medium EK Success Retro Flower punches, and the Martha Stewart leaf punch... Now those flowers... white card stock - I know you are saying.. "huh"  White card stock that I used my air brush and Copics and sprayed them to match the flowers in the image!! Love how they came out! Need to do more of this... just forget sometimes that I can do it. LOL I dotted the centers of the flowers with Copic Opaque White. New stuff for me, need to learn ways of using it, more than dots anyway. My sentiment is from Stampavie.

Hope you like my PUNCHED card, and now POP on over to Just Magnolias and see all the GORGEOUS DT cards... and what this weeks prize is.. its a good one.. wink wink!

Have a Wonderful Friday and HUGS!
