Papertrey Princess Challenge...Punch It!

I belong to an awesome group of crafters called the Papertrey Princesses. We are all fans of Papertrey Ink stamps and products and connected on their message board. I love all the inspiration I get from these creative, crafty girls. They are the best!! Today I am posting a challenge for our group...Punch It! I want you to use your punches to make a card or layout or project. Border punches, circle punches...any kind will work.

I pulled out my favorite Martha Stewart butterfly punch, some Bella Blvd scraps and started punching. Here is what I ended up with.


I loved the Hello Beautiful line from Bella Blvd, I could not let one scrap go to waste. I thought I would pair red with yellow for a bright and cheerful card. And I used a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Fancy Flourishes for the little red flourish.


Okay Princesses, let's see you put your punches to work! And please feel free to join in on the challenge. Link me to your card if you make one so I can check it out. Thanks for stopping by today!
