Isabella Sketchbook challenge

This week over at Isabella's Sketchbook challenge we want to see your punches ! So why not dig out your punches and show us what you can do, and don't forget to use an Isabella fab image ! The image I've used is called Evening Flower and I've shaded it with ProMarkers. I've cut it out with deckle edged Nestabilities and used Wild Honey Distress Ink around the edge before removing the die. The background paper is My Minds Eye from a freebie pad of paper, and I've used DI around the edge. The stitching is by hand and the border punch is a Martha Stewart.

I printed the image twice and cut out the flowers as an embellishment and the swirl is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. I'm also entering this card for Sketch Saturday challenge and Papertake's Challenge which is 'In the Garden'.

Well I have to say I'm so glad the weather has cooled down, I actually managed to sleep all the way through last night without waking up in a hot sticky mess !

I hope you manage to join us this week at Isabella's and make you sure you check out the fab DT cards.

Thanks for looking
