Punches and Dies, Oh My!!!

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. -Judy Garland
Here I am again, late for a Blogger's Challenge Friday!! I haven't had much time to stamp this week, but I need to do it allllll weekend, because I have a Lot to do!

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to use Dies or Punches...well, That is Easy! I'm not sure I Ever make a card without some sort of Die or Punch! :) I used a Nestibilities Scallop Circle Die and a Martha Stewart corner punch on this card, I combined the challenge with the Colour Create color combo (Blue, Sand, Silver and Black.)

My Grandma requested a wedding card so I pulled out Fairy Tales by Verve and just started playing. The blue paper is a sheet from the Wisteria pad by Basic Grey and the corner punch is the Loop Corner by Martha Stewart (Currently on Pre-Order, expected to ship Sept 15th)

I stamped the swirls and the sentimnet in Silver Colorbox Chalk ink, then went over the sentimnet with a Micron .005 pen, added a touch of blue to the inside of the sircle for interest then covered the inside of the circle with Stardust Stickles. The ribbon is some Gorgeous 1" Martha Stewart Satin I picked up the other day at Big Lots!

Sorry for the crappy picture...I am SO buying a new camera next pay day!!!
