Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use a Punch

Hi, everybody!  It's Sunday and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week we would like you to Use a Punch. I chose today's image and - would you believe - it doesn't have a cat on it LOL.  I fell in love with this adorable digi from Fred She Said called Smelling the Cherry Blossoms, and I had a lot of fun colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils. Since our theme is Use a Punch, I used my Marvy Uchida dragonfly punch.



Here are the other supplies used:

  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframe Ovals, Spellbinders Floral Ovals
  • Designer paper:  Basic Grey Konnichiwa

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use a Punch challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!
