Die cuts and/or punches at Sweet Stampin'

 Hello,  welcome to my blog this wet and windy Saturday- it's the first of April and I think it's the weather that playing the tricks on us  this All-Fools Day! It rained so hard yesterday that our patio was flooded, Marvin thought it was swimming pool!  Never mind, it can't last forever and soon we'll probably be moaning about it being too hot and needing rain if this is going to be anything like last year!

This is the first of two posts today, our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is to use die cuts/punches on your creations...and of course you must include some stamping too- be it digital or 'real'. 

The image on my card is a digi- as is the sentiment both part of the Rebel set by Polkadoodles. I've coloured with makers and fussy cut the cute image and placed her onto the inked and splattered background panel that I'd already printed the sentiment on. I stamped the leaves in the right hand corner and added some die cut 'blossom'- ok not a lot of die cuts but they're there!

There are some fabulous cards from my lovely teamies this fortnight so don't miss your chance to hop over and take a look.

I'll be back later with another DT card.
