2 Sisters Challenge ~ Punches

Good morning! It's challenge day at 2 Sisters Challenges. This week's challenge is our special 5th week challenge. Our challenge this week will last for just 1 week instead of the usual 2 weeks. We would like you to use PUNCHES on your projects. This week we are being sponsored by Karen's Doodles!!!
Karen has kindly given each of us a digi to play with. The image I used on my card is called Here Comes The Bride. I made this anniversary card for a couple in my church. The punch that I used is a Lace Heart Border Punch by Martha Stewart. The embossing on my card is done using Fiskars Swirl Texture Plates. I added a few white roses that I received in a prize that I won. I picked the ribbon up at AC Moore for just a $1 and thought it was perfect for this card. Simple yet elegant. I finished my card by adding a few pink heart pearls.

We are also introducing a new member to our DT this week. My mom (Donna) has finally agreed to join us as part of our team. We are so excited to have her join us. If you have a few minutes please check out her blog and help welcome her and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT and see all their gorgeous creations. They've done an awesome job again this week.
