Lili of the Valley - Challenge 89 Punch It!

This is my entry for this weeks Lili of the Valley challenge - the theme is Punch It, so out came the punches of which I have a few!  That actually could have been a name for this blog - of which I have a few.  I seem to have a few of everything - that should be imagined being said with either a wink or a snigger.  I don't have a few of anything, I have loads! 

It actually made me a bit worried recently, I was looking for some patterned paper and by the time I'd got through boxes, plastic folders, pads on my table and things put away in drawers - I realised I have far too much paper.  In fact, I have loads of everything - apart from occasionally inspiration and never confidence.

Anyway on with the card.  I have used Fairies Thistledown stamp, coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with Stickles glitter.  The paper came from a free pack with one of my mags quite awhile ago now.  I made the flowers by punching out, shaping and layering two sizes of daisy punch then adding a gem in the middle.  The leaves are made with a die from Little Claire's, the border on the coloured card was using an EK success punch and the border going across was using one of my Martha Stewart deep edge punches.  The sentiment is one of Craftwork Cards.

I'm not entirely sure about the card, I think it might be the punched flowers.  I used to do this all the time and then moved onto brought flowers, so now I look at them and aren't sure, but there you go it's done now and will disappear into my box of cards.

To anyone who has read all this waffle - you deserve a prize and hope you are all having a lovely day.
