Pink Gem - Die Cuts/Punches

Good Morning everyone,

I've just had the worst night sleep ever, I spent the night on the sofa as Cherry (my kitty) decided to hide herself under there after I removed her lamp shade so she could eat.

Me and hubby spent over an hour trying to coax her out but every time we got close to her she growled and tried to bite me, the poor thing was in such a state :-(

Any hoos, today card is for the new challenge over at A Gem a Challenge and this time we would like to see Die cuts or punches on your creation ... easy peasy!!

The winner will receive two Digi's of their own choice from Janet's lovely store!

This is the super cute Dragon Josh (he comes as a pre-coloured version too) and I coloured him with my flex markers.

I've used DCWV Safari Kids stack for this card, I love this pad,great for little boys.

I also used my x-cut stars die and my Die-namics border die and tabs die.

Everything has been matted with brown and black card.

Here you can see the inside and I used and image from the Fabosaurus Stamp set, you get loads of images in here, all with pre-coloured and black line options - such a fab pack for little boys cards.

I coloured this little fella with my flex markers.

And there you have it, i'm not suwho i'm going to give this card to as I only have girls but at least its on for the box :-)

Hope you have a great weekend, it would be lovely to see your creations over on the challenge!

I'm off to check on little Cherry now but i'll be up tomorrow with another DT creation.

Love and Hugs xx Cara xx
