Let's Get Punchy

In honor of the arrival of the latest Martha Stewart punches, today's challenge on the Jacksonbelle Blog is to Get Punchy! We'd love to have you play along and link your punched creations to the Jbelle challenge. If uploading to a public gallery, please use keyword JBE065. I built my card around the butterfly and border punches, adding in a labels four die, some really lovely October Afternoon paper, and this dotted American Crafts ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I'll have another Our Craft Lounge preview, so be sure to check in again.
