Card Makin' Mamas Decorative Punches Challenge

I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog since last Friday. I have been so busy this week organising my new challenge blog and various other things, including an Oklahoma rehearsal, I haven't had time to make any cards! I was getting withdrawal symptoms!! However, I managed to sit down yesterday and make my DT card for this challenge. Phew!
Today hails the start of a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and we have all been getting creative with our decorative punches!

This card features this gorgeous 'Ashley with Rose' image by our fab sponsors for this challenge, Digi Darla! Isn't she a cutie! I have coloured her with my best friends! My ProMarkers of course! I am loving them more and more as I improve my blending technique. They are amazing pens. And I have also found my BFF paper for colouring with my ProMarkers .. Elegance Satin from Joanna Sheen! It is amazing!! So thanks Lisa for your recommendation!!

So here is my ingredients list for this card:
Ashley with Rose digi from Digi Darla
Backing papers by Bearly Mine
Sophia's heart die by Cheery Lynn
Tonic butterfly punch
Martha Stewart Doily border punch
Pool Adirondack Ink
Pearl gems

Ooh and the sentiment is from one of the new LOTV sentiment sets. I treated myself to a couple of them this week .. naughty!! But they are fab!

Don't forget the DT call for my new challenge blog is running until June 29th! See post at top of my blog for a link!!

Happy Crafting!
