Got To Roll With The Punches.....Or Dies.....

Hello everyone: It's time for a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, the subject for this week is PUNCHES OR DIES so, get busy and join my teammates and I in the gallery. Here is my card.

Sometimes I need a bit of inspiration to create my cards and for that, I go to Pinterest, where I found THIS CARD by Heidi Baks and decided to CASE it, thank you Heidi. 
This flowers are made with the awesome Stampin' Up! set called Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, fabulous images that you can die cut in any color, I'm so glad I invested in this dies, they are awesome.  I just sponged the centers of the flowers with some distress inks and added 3 enamel dots for dimension.
The word "you're" is cut with my Cricut machine, I'm ashamed to say I haven't used it in years, I was even thinking of selling it or donating it but I'm sure glad I didn't because it helped me cut this word to compliment my other sentiment "amazing" which is one of my new dies I bought from Ebay. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

I stamped my sentiment from the old Flourishes set called "Magnolias" and die cut it with a Spellbinders die set called "Oval Regalia".
So, there you have it, get your punches and or dies and I hope you join us in the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, please stop by the blog and check out the awesome cards from the rest of the Designer Team, then visit their blogs and leave them some comment love. 
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
