Punch it - My ROP/BnW Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!

Are you ready for another week?? Well, after all that Blog Hops on Thursday with Mo's DT, and Friday wirh BnW... I am still a bit tired! (all that hopping, you know!). Joking, no thank God, I am ready for another week, filled with Blessings and new opportunities to help and make others happy.

But I do hope that you remembered that Pre orders for the new Spring Cleaning and Summer release started yesterday at BnW Store, and later this week shipping will start, so if you are soo much looking forward to have your new babes, go and pre order now if you still haven't.

Remember also that you can buy two digital downloads, also from the BnW Store site, and these will be instantly yours, through your e mail :) Isn't that wonderful!

Back to our Challenge. This time it is my turn to set the challenge, and I like to choose themes that are easy for all of you to join in. I know that all of us don't have enough time to create as much as we would like to, so remember that you can join other challenges with your creation for ROP/BNW challenge, but it has to have one of the stamps available in Summer's Stores.

For this week, I chose the theme: Punch it!!

No I don't want YOU to punch anyone, I'd like you to PUNCH your cards, using one or as many as you'd like punches on your creation. I have obviously used another one of the fresh cuties available at BnW: Bronzing Beauty, and I created this card using a pink/deep red and green combo.

I used Copics to colour bronzing Belle, and then added some Stickles on the flowers of her bathing suit.I punched a matting frame with a Martha Stewart punch (I'm sorry I forgot the name) and I also used the doily lace punch (also form MS) to create the panel across the main dp. I rounded the image's corners, and embellished with those cute small blingy corners, that coordinated perfectly with the combo. I really like those corners, thank you Sonja for sending them! The "sand" beneath her feet was done by patting the ground with three light shades of brown Copics, then I added some Scattered Straw Stickles for dimension and shine :)

Papers are BG, Eva and Cupcake packs, and the flowers are Prima and Magnolia (the large green flower). It's a gorgeous flower, and I distressed it with Peeled Paint and touched it with Stickles of the same colour. All highlighted products can be found at Roses on Paper... plus many more must haves for lovely creations.

The flowers underneath the mini roses, as you can see, are punch outs, so in all I used 4 different punches in this card.. 2 border punches, a flower punch and a corner rounder punch. How much will you use?? :)) Show me, by adding your card here, in our challenge blog.

Sentiment is K& Co, and I used this one as it had the same colours as the ones I used. Well this Belle IS an orignal, her beauty is tops, and it can be used for lots of occasions: Friendship, Summer birthdays, Invites, thank yous.. you name it! You can buy her here!

This is the inside view. I used a Stempelglede grunge stamp and Stampin' up round sentiment for the upper side. For the lower side I used another BG paper, and included a jotting piece, which I Distressed and embellished with half pearls, from my stash.

Copic numbers used:

W00,1, 3
G0000, 21, 82, 85, BG75
Y23, YR0000, 21, 24, YG0000
R0000, 20, 81, RV06
V0000, 09, 12
E000, 13, 21, 25, 31, 35
