Dies & Punches!

Good morning and as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz!  There were some fabulous entries for our 'Bingo' challenge last week.  And this week our lovely Beth has challenged us to use our 'Dies and Punches'!  Now come on everybody, I would imagine that nearly every crafter must have some dies or punches, so do go and have a look at the fantastic inspiration from the DT this week and then get punching!
Our sponsors this week are

Digistamps4Joy SHOP

and I have used a Digistamps4joy image on my creation this week

I've used a whole mixed bag of dies and punches on this one!  The sentiment is mounted onto a Spellbinders 'lattice' die cut, the backing papers (from Nitwit at LOTV) have been punched with a Tonic border punch and then the flowers have been punched with a Tonic punch from coredinations card! 
And I decided to make it into a 6" square gatefold card.  The sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and pearls from stash and there's a little Stickles added round the edge of the sentiment. 
Hope you like it! 
So do join us with your die cutting and punches at CraftyCatz!
