BG 20 - Punch It!

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. It's 'punch it' on BG Challenges this time and there's some wonderful inspiration from my DT friends and a great prize from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp, I hope you can join us.

I've used Crafty Secrets stamps for my card  water coloured with distress inks. The background paper is from the BasicGrey Capella collection and my scalloped edge was punched with a Fiskars scalloped punch. Enjoy your Saturday and TFL.

Pretty card, Chris! I managed to get out to my-not-so-local LSS (nearest stamp store...they have all slowly closed over the past few years *sniff*) and I was able to see these new BG lines IRL. I promised myself I would not buy more paper; I resisted Capella (for now), but I did buy max & whiskars *sigh*

Oh Chris what a gorgeous sweet card. My eyes are clearly objecting to me blogging at the moment as when I first saw the image, I thought it was a radiator! Oh, its clearly time for my bed or I need an eye test - or even both!

Es una preciosidad el coloreado del sello, toda una clase magistral. Los demas detalles coordinados, hacen una tarjeta de cine.
