Using Punches

Good Monday morning everyone!!! We are having a brisk morning here in Central Texas. My DH is mowing the yard before it snows tomorrow. We escaped the last storm...they got 9-10 inched in the Dallas area...yikes!!! I am looking forward to being *snowed in* and forced to stamp all day...Whoohoo!!! Anyway....
I stayed up till 1:30 last night to play in the Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoast. Holly challenged us to create a scene with punches....tooo fun!!
I used three different SU circle punches and the SU scalloped circle punch to make the bunny and the SU scalloped circle punch and the MS fern punch for the carrots. The grass was punched out with an EK Success scallop punch. The butterflies were punched with a MS butterfly creativity there...LOL!! Flower Soft was added to the bunny and the sentiment was from Rubbernecker's Floral Silhouettes set 2 #468. This was sooo much sure to get out those punches and give it a try!!!
Stamps: Rubbernecker Flower Silhouettes #468
Paper: Old Olive, Prism Iced Azalea, White, Vanilla, October Afternoon's Weathervane Collection
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Three Different Sized SU Circle Punches, SU Scalloped Circle Punch, MS Fern Punch, MS Butterfly Punch , EK Success Scalloped Border Punch, White and Pink Flower Soft

I made this yesterday for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast..... Judi Rose (JovialJudi) was chosed to be the featured stamper. What a fabulous was hard to pick just one of her card to case!!! I finally chose her CC258 Celebrating You card..... I kept the same basic layout but changed the colors, stamps, amd eliminated the scallops. The Clear Dollar Stamps Jungle Fever images illustrated by Wendy Hall were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The head on the lion was popped up on dimensionals and the ribbon finished it off. This is also for the Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential challenge to use distressing.
