Joan's Challenge #20

Well like I said, I played yesterday, here is the one I came up with for Joan's challenge.  I need to win over there big time, not a win all year.  So cross your toes!  I used Heartfelt HCPC3399 Wedding Dove, I embossed it with silver powder, colored some of the flowers in with a glitter pen, added pearls and using 3D dots attached to the Spellbinders Floral Oval.  I cut out one of Cherry Lynn's Fanciful Flourishes and cut it apart applying it under the bird.Then I used Martha's Vintage Floral around the page punches to create my frame to attach to the card base of 5X7.  Again if you will notice I punched in the corner of the frame.  All I do is go ahead and punch all the way around the card, then in each corner, eyeball the corner punch again with it pushed all the way up without bending it, punch.  Hope this helps, I have gotten several emails asking how I did this.  I won't promise, but will try my hand at doing a demo for you later on.
