A Little Birdie Told Me …


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another challenge with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month, it’s time for a new challenge hostess which is Tosh Leyendekker. Tosh is focusing on tools for our challenges this month and to start of the month we had to use punches!

Now I have one or two punches sitting around the place so this was a good challenge to get a couple of them used.

I combined two of the new Pure Innocence sets that were released by MFT stamps earlier in the week. These sets are PI Out on a Limb and PI You’re so Tweet.

For the punch portion of the challenge I used my Martha Stewart Woodland Branches border punch. You can see it peeking out along the border which is behind my main image. I also used it to edge my rosette die cut it using the MFT Die-namics Rosette 1/4” die. The pink centre piece on top of the rosette was created using MFT Die-namics Perfect Petals die.


Perfect Petal Trio 


Here is the inside of my card, using one of the sentiments from the PI – You’re So Tweet stamp set. I also used another of my Martha Stewart border punches …. this one is a bird border!
