Inspiration Punch


I made a visit to Michael's yesterday and treated myself to a new punch or two.....well, actually a dear friend's son treated me, through a holiday gift certificate, to the punches. So, of course, this deep edge punch was itching to be used on yesterday's Inspiration Challenge cards......and the punch won....it was used on both. On the first I used sheer ribbon over it while on the second, I 'lined' the back with the same burgundy c/s I used to mat my layers. FUN! FUN! FUN!!
Yesterday we were in the high 40's....positively tropical compared to our normal temps this winter......today, unfortunately we are facing all kinds of precipitation forecase for the afternoon. However, I will be having birthday cake at my godchild's home. His younger son is celebrating his 3rd birthday!!!! Happy Birthday, Sam!!!

Oh my.....Joanne, those new punches are awesome!!! I love the way you've used it the first one so striking and beautiful. And the second card....well, you've used that corner punch (I still don't have it :C) and those gorgeous colors. Absolutely breathtaking creations my friend!! Hugs, Sabrina
