Punches and Dies

Well when I said earlier that I was going to stretch and challenge myself to venture out to other card challenges, I didn't realize that I felt fairly comfortable with at least two of them.  

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week is punchy ~ meaning punches and dies.

Here is my card:

Supplies: Sizzix embossing folder, Hero Arts/Sizzix flower die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Hero Arts Sentiment

The embossed background is attached with pop dots to give it dimension and the flower die is layered 7 times to give it dimension. (This was a technique that Jennifer McGuire shared.).

Enjoy your day!
