What could make that bright day even brighter? A challenge from Send A Smile 4 Kids and this weeks challenge is one of my fav's - Punches and/or Dies 4 Kids.
Before I show you my cards, I must tell you about this weeks amazing sponsors.
- The Cutting Cafe' - is awarding 3 digi or cutting files of the winners choice.
- Meljen's Design - is giving one lucky winner 4 non-colored images of that winners choice.
- Oak Pond Creations is giving 1 digi image of the winners choice.
This fun image on my first card is from The Cutting Cafe' - what an adorable sweet treat. This classic saying takes me back to when I was a kid. Keeping in mind this weeks challenge is to use punches and/or dies, I went a little over the top. The image is cut out with my petite oval Spellbinders and then matted with my scalloped petite oval Spellbinders. I used a flourish from a very old Sizzix classic die. On the background I used a Martha Stewart lattice work border punch and I also used Fiskar's stitches border punch. I think that fulfills the requirements of the challenge. LOL!!
I'm very pleased to welcome Meljen's Designs as a sponsor to SAS4K. I have been a follower of Meljen for several years so I squealed when I found out they were going to become one of our sponsors. We're soooooo glad you've joined us. This adorable images is called Little Girl Bear Hugs. So adorable!!!! I thought this image would be perfect for my current favorite style. I love this very simple style of using a plain white card to feature an amazing image and just adding some banners across the top. To keep with the theme of the challenge, I used a couple different punches. The banners are made using my EK Success punch and the border is made using a Martha Stewart border punch.
