MFW: The Punches Challenge

I love my punches! Yes I do! I love how it takes only 5 seconds to punch a shape out and you can see where you are punching. Or if you are punching a border, you can do it out of any paper in just a few minutes.

I came up with this idea of a ladybug using the circle punch when I was creating my OWH Sketch #103. I decided that I needed to try a larger ladybug for this challenge and I LOVE it! The dots are stamped using a pencil eraser (thanks Mom you taught me that from your folkart painting days!). The antennas are cording that has been knotted. I also punched the gold paper using my favorite go-to border punch and a little hand stitching. The sentiment was printed on via my computer/printer. I love the "Wish I Was Taller" font. Oh I almost forgot that I also used my corner punch to add some fun as well. Enjoy!!!

OMG...I was so excited about my card that I forgot to link to the Moxie Fab is the link... Sorry about the repost.
