Cute Card Thursday #127 - Dying for a Punch

The Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week is called Dying for a Punch. The challenge is to make a card without any punches or die cuts. This was a real challenge for me as I almost always use a punch. However, I managed to find some alternatives. Here is my card...


Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Memento, Copics
Accessories: Fabric, Stickles, organza ribbon, staples


I combined some other challenges into this one. I joined the Basic Grey Challenge, which is "Fabric." I used some Mod Podge on fabric and added the fabric as part of the background, and also cut out fabric and pieced it onto her dress. I surrounded her dress with Stickles. The other fabric piece is behind the braided organza and bows.


I also incorporated the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #68. 

Thanks for coming by today! See ya soon.

Julie I am just in awe of your card! There is so much I adore! What an honor to have you join us in the fun at Midnight Madness.

Back to gushing about your card. The image just has so much to it, it's like it kept getting better and better the more I looked at it! And the braided and tied ribbon is simply genius with the lacing in Priscilla's sketch. Wow, thank you thank you for taking the time to play the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge with us this week. I would love to see more from you, this one is AMAZING!

Yours,
