DTC #99 - Punches

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Mine has been great, and I am so happy that I feel great again! Enjoyed the day with the whole family yesterday since the kids were home from school for presidents day and I even got myself a couple new crafting goodies.

Today's card is for Digital Tuesday, Anneke is our hostess this week and she would like to see

Punches.

This should be easy enough so hope you will all play along! As always there is going to be an amazing digistamp prize, and this week we are sponsored again by Stitchy bear stamps offering a gift certificate to their store!

For my card I used a newly released digital stamp from meljen's desigsn, available for purchase at Whimsy Stamps. I just love Meljen's mouse and since I didn't get a chance yet to use it I decided to use it for today's challenge.

I have printed the image on GinaK layering weight card stock and colored it with my derwent coloursoft pencils. I went with more masculine colors on this one, thought the image would be perfect for a boy's birthday card.
The design is kept clean and simple, got the sketch idea from a clean and simple challenge blog but forgot to bookmark the site. Designer papers are all retired from Stampin Up. My sentiment is from a clear stamp set by Penny Black (critter party). I used my word window punch to punch it out and layered it onto a punched out circle which is folded behind the main image. Embellished with some pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon, a star shaped button and silver cord. Then I added a little bit of stickles here and there.

ETA: I made this card also for this week's meljen's challenge which is to use a birthday sentiment, but when I typed up my posting last night I totally forgot to include that.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you liked the card and maybe you'll find some time to join us this week!
Also just a reminder, be sure to check back with us next week as we are having our 100th challenge blog hop celebration!!!
