Hello friends!  Today our challenge at the Pals Paper Arts is a technique ... punches.  So go ahead and add a punch or two to your card.  


Here is what my inky fingers and some great punches created ...

DSP:  Certainly Celery
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Marina Mist (pad & marker), Old Olive (marker)
Accessories:  circle, word window, modern label, ticket and hole punch, Marina Mist ribbon, ice brads, pop dots, edge distresser
All products are Stampin' Up!

My time on the Pals Design Team has come to an end.  It has been wonderful experience and I have enjoyed it so much!   I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Pals for letting me be a part of their awesome team for the last three months.  I would also like to welcome Margaret Moody back.  You were missed and everyone is looking forward to seeing your beautiful creations again.


I hope you can find some time to pull out those versatile punches and play along with us this week.  


Have a great day,
Pam~

I so agree with Carla!! A bittersweet day, wonderful Margaret is back, but SO SAD to see you go. I love your card. A clever way to run your ribbon through your focal point, spotlighting your flower and your color choices are really pretty!!!

Oh my, Pam...you've made a beauty with all the punches. I just went to check out that challenge. I love challenges! I'm going to try to play in this one if I have time. I should have done that while you were still on the team. Ugh! Never enough time. Love the wonderful colors on your card and the ice brads. Great spotlighting.
Thanks for putting my blog candy on your sidebar. Good luck!
