Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge #10 - Be Bold and Punchy!

Hey everyone... 
I hope your Wednesday is going great so far...
Mine is... My WONDERFUL hubby dropped into
Kmart for me today and bought me my Blue Ray copy
of "New Moon".... FINALLY!!! Ya! 
So I am going to be real quick with this post cause
I have a date with Rob!!

Now where was I?!! Oh yeah, this week's
Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge

This week Jen would like us to:
* Use bold colours
* Two different punches on our creations.

And this is what I came up with....

With this card I decided to use the beautiful fairy digi image "Willow".
I also chose this gorgeous Cosmo Cricket DP from the
"Material Girl" collection. I thought red was a pretty
good bold colour to start with and matched the DP really well.

I used 3 different punches, one Fiskas Border punch 
and 2 Martha Stewart punches, a border and my beautiful butterfly.
I then stamped some leaves with an old Hero Arts leaf stamp
that I have had forever and then cut them out. 
The "Hello" is a sentiment from the TSG 
"Spring Fever "stamp set.

I coloured Willow in with my Prisma's and although you can't
see it very well I used my Sakura Gelly Roll "Clear Star" 
pen for the middle of her wings, her headband and necklace.

Then I used one of Jen's fairy sentiments for the inside of the card...

We would really love it if you could play along with us this week.
All you have to do is head on over to the
and checkout the challenge details.. 
Then when you have made your card add it to the 
Mr Linky at the bottom of the challenge post.

Thank For Stopping By!

This card is So pretty! Your coloring is Gorgeous, as always. You are making me re-evaluate that material girl paper - I ordered the 6x6 pad without seeing it in person, and have not really loved it, but it looks gorgeous on your card! :-)Traci
