It's hump day so it must be time for a new Paper Pretties challenge.
My card features Life's Treasures Sofia. Sofia's having a fun day at the beach collecting shells and playing in the water. Depending on where you live this might just be what you're daydreaming about, or as we say here in sunny Florida "it's just another day in Paradise."
This stamp is perfect for this week's Paper Pretties challenge PWC305 "Punches". I don't know about you but I have a lot of punches but there are a few that I love and use over and over. If you've been visiting here for a long time you probably recognize some of them. For this challenge I used the beach border and the corner cut outs. I love the border punch, I wish it went with everything. I use it every chance I get. The corner punch is great because it can be used all year round on any kind of card. It's a great quick and easy way to add a little something extra to dress up your card. Doesn't that little bit of color from the mat look pretty popping up in the image layer? Another thing that's great about punches is that you don't need any equipment to use them so if you're on a budget you can pick up an interesting punch to spice up your cards without breaking the bank.
Now it's your turn. Pick up a punch and get busy playing your paper. Don't forget to link your creation up on the Paper Pretties Challenge Blog. You could win 5 digis.
