It's Time to Celebrate! - FFFC #190 'Punches & Dies'


Happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This is our Challenge #190 and the new theme is 'Punches and Dies.'  I hope you'll be able to play along with us.  Hop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog for complete details on the challenge and to check out what my teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

This is the card that I came up with.

Love the Weathered Clock die from Tim Holtz.  I thought that die cut would be perfect for the sentiment.

A closer look at the Magnolia Stamps image being featured.

This cute-girl image is called 'Tilda with Heart Socks' and she's from Magnolia Stamp's 'With Love Collection 2013.'  I've coloured her the usual way with alcohol-ink markers and a few coloured pencils for better shading.  I've cut her out and then mount her on double-sided foam tape.
