Punched borders

I seem to have loads of projects started and stuff all over my craft room at the minute, it looks like an explosion in a paper factory but I've been struggling to get anything finished for some reason. Anyway I've managed to get this card finshed for the Bah Humbug challenge this week which is punched borders.

It was a real challenge for me as I don't have many punches at all, I've just never really got into them. I do have some papermania punches that I got for a real bargain price ages ago and thanks to Ann on the Bah Humbug team who did a tutorial for this tecnique ages I managed to make this card. I have to say it wasn't easy and they aren't lined up perfectly but at least its punched lol. I used red glitter card for the punched border background. The image is a stamp from Joanna Sheen, coloured with inktense pencils and glittered with a little prisma glitter to highlight the snow. The image is matted on to some green mirri card and I added a scrap of green and gold ribbon to finish off.
Im also entering this card into the challenge from Winter Wonderland which is 'See amid the winter snow'

Thanks for looking
