Punch Happy--Crazy 4 Challenges #13

Mornin', peeps! It's Saturday so that means it's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. This week Frances has challenged us to get punchy! She wants us to use punches on our card or projects today. This month is sponsored by Kraftin' Kimmie and I'm using an image called Small Talk today. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut/embossed it with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. I'm using a Martha Stewart border punch and a bird punch for my punches. Otherwise, I think it's pretty simple--a little ribbon, a few buttons and that's that!

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy 4 Challenges team!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the sketch and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project, and not your blog. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C13.
