Die cuts/punches at No Matter Which Challenges

Hi there, wow we were chuffed to bits to see so many gorgeous entries for our first challenge at
 No Matter Which Challenges, can you believe its September already so that means its time for a new challenge. This time we want to see die cuts and/or punches used on your projects. 

Suzanne has arranged some fab sponsors and this months winner certainly won't be disappointed as the prize up for grabs is a free place on one of the courses at My Creative Classroom! I've done quite a few of their courses and they are fab-u-lous :-)
Anyway back to my DT project, I've made a Christmas card (not long now eeeek) using one of my favourite Whiff of Joy stamps, watercoloured with distress markers and die cut with spellbinders. The backing paper was made with moonshadow inks and has a lovely shimmer in real life. I've added some scraps of backing papers from my Christmas box and some crinoline fabric (from Linda at The Funkie Junkie) stamped with a stampers anonymous music score stamp with walnut stain distress ink. You can see the image better in this pic:

I've added lots of die cuts (Marianne poinsettias and fir branch, tattered pine cones and foliage. To finish off I've added cotton lace, ribbon, a tiny brass bell, a little metal corner and some faux pearls in the corners.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
A&T Emerald Faeries: Die cuts/punches
Amusing Challenge: anything goes
(mine is peeping out between the two pine cones)
Fairy Tale: anything metal
Love to create: Handmade flowers
Polka Doodles: Flowers

Thanks for popping by, you've got plenty of time to play along with our new challenge as its open until 30th September. Do stop by my teamies blogs as their projects are stunning
