Punch It!

My card was made for the Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge#11 over at the MFP blog. The challenge this week is to get out those punches and use them. For this I used 2 SU! punches, including the bird and circle punch. The scalloped layer was cut with Nesties. The sentiment was done in Versafine Onyx Black ink with a G Studio stamp. The DP and turquoise cardstock are by SU!. The card base is PTI Vintage Cream with a mat of Kraft. The grosgrain ribbon is by SU! and the gemstones are by Kaiser.
I hope you're winding down from a fabulous weekend and staying cool! Thanks for spending a little of your day here with me :) See you again soon :)
