FMS44 - Perfect Punches & Birds of a Feather

Design Team member Jen Mitchell over at Freshly Made Sketches is the hostess for the week who created this sketch and brought us these fun circles to play with.

This one was quite a challenge for me since I felt like I had a creative block. In the end, after alot of thinking, I thought let me pull those punches out and see what I come up with. If you would like to join the fun, you can click here to go directly to the challenge.

 Here is mine:
I pulled out some new DSP called: Birds of a Feather and played with In Colors: Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple cardstock as main elements on the card.

Sentiment comes from the set: Perfect Punches using Midnight Muse ink along with the Modern Label Punch as a layer under it. Added a little butterfly in the end to the sentiment and added some Basic Pearls.

Here I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Punch (Raspberry Ripple), Owl Punch (Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, DSP), for the leaf Bird Punch (Old Olive) and last but not least 1 3/4" circle punch.

This time around, I forced myself not to use any embossing folder and see how it would look all white and smooth. Let me know what you think. Almost forgot Stampin Dimensionals were used under the Owl. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!
