Sentimental Sundays challenge 194 pack a punch

Hi everyone...

This challenge over at Sentimental Sundays is called pack a punch (so you can use a punch or a die cut!)

Sponsored by Doodle Pantry
I'm getting a bit fed up of grey skies and pouring rain, so my card this week is full of springtime colours to remind me of daffodils and crocus, and hopefully some sunnier weather!

The backing papers are from a Kay Miller digi kit (fruitilicious) and the stamp is from the sponsor (and isn't he the sweetest little chap!).  He was coloured with promarkers (canary yellow, amber and bright orange for his feathers, lime green and chartreuse for the cupcake wrapper, rose pink and watermelon for the topping, and shading with warm grey 2 to 4.  The punch element is a border along the side (difficult to see in some photos) and the flower which is my latest craft purchase, its Tim Holtz, tattered flowers (and I love it!).  This flower was slightly distressed by crumpling the paper and adding a spot of peeled paint distress ink.  The sentiment came with the image, I just changed the colour and put it onto a coloured background.

I hope you like my bright and cheery card, please hop over to Sentimental Sundays, check out the amazing DT projects for inspiration and remember to use a punch or a die and the required sentiment!
