Sentimental Sundays DT post #194 : Pack a Puch (use a punch or die cut)

Hello again! I'm back (busy Sunday!!!) as it's time for a new challenge at 

Sentimental Sundays

Today's theme at Sentimental Sundays challenge is:

Pack a Punch (use a punch or die cut)
(plus a sentiment)

Easy!!!! I don't know about you, but I hardly make a card without using a punch or die cut!!!

This week's sponsor is Doodle Pantry.

they kindly donated an image for me to work with, and I chose a really fun one called "Balloon Ants", aren't they cute??!!!

The papers I've used are from: Paparmania Capsule collections Pastel Spots and Stripes and Let's fly away Paper Stack (this was a freebie with Quick Cards magazine a few years ago). I though this paper will look great as the ants are flying... 

I used my Promarkers to colour the image.

I used: coral, peach, soft peach and cool grey 5 to 1.

The sentiment is 1 out of 5 sentiments included with the digital image package. I used the Happy birthday one, but there are another 4 really fun sentiments.

I hand-stitched the background layer with yellow thread.

I built up the layers, playing with different shapes

I used two punches: a border punch along the main image and a corner punch.

To embellish, I just used some ribbon and 3 buttons.

So, don't wait a minute, hop over to Sentimental Sundays challenge and join us. A really easy challenge this week, no excuses!!! My team mates also have really cool cards to show you, so don't forget to check them out!
