Punches and Dies

When I saw the way Amelia used her punch on this card I knew I had to try it some time. I thought I had hashed it up and ruined a lovely piece of paper , but was determined to get it right so tried it again on a piece of Kraft and ironed out the problem , and I think it does look good.
The card is for my sister Dawn who is coming to SA in January for a Summer Holiday and as I was posting something else to her and the last card I sent never arrived ,I thought I have to make her a card.

 I hope she likes it , I think it is kind of fun. 

I also made it for the new challenge over at Ooh-la-la which is to use Punches and Dies . I have used my Martha Stewart Punch and Flourishes (my seaweed) from Mariannes Designs, the lovely image of the bathing beauty's  and the paper is from the Fun in the Sun collection which is available from the  Ooh-la -la online store.

Please join in the challenge and link your creations to the Ooh-la-la Creations blog.
