Mo's Challenge #153

Punches and Dies

This was an easy challenge for me, as I use punches and/or dies on almost all of my cards. I never met a punch or die I didn't like! 

This card uses an image that Mo gave away as a freebie, but is now available in the shop. 
I think this embossing folder gives the look of elephant skin.

Images: "I Forgot!" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital peanuts, Stamped sentiment from SU!

Tools: Copics, Distressing tool, Cuttlebug with embossing folder, Flower die, and leaf flourish die, Oval punches, Small daisy punch. Mounting tape, Glue dots

Embellishments: Small brads

 I can't wait to see which dies and punches you'll use on your creation for this Mo's Challenge this week. I'm always looking for pretty new ones! LOL!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for some wonderful inspiration


This is a card made using one of the images from the free sheets available on Crafts on the Net.
