Blogger's Challenge Friday #9

Sorry for being a day late with the challenge. My real job has been claiming my evenings this week which leaves no time for stamping. I don't think it's going to get better this week, so next Friday's challenge might be the next time you hear from me!

Anyway, this week's challenge was to get punchy! We were supposed to make a card using punches as our focal point.

For this card, I used the Small Tag punch and the Key Tag punch to make tombstones. I also used the Ticket Corner punch to make a couple 1 1/2" squares into tombstones as well. The moon was punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Too much fun!

For the tombstones, I sponged them with the same color ink as the card stock to make them look older. I also debossed the "RIP" on each tombstone to make them look carved.

This card will fit in the small open ended envelopes. It measures 6 1/2" by 3 1/4".

I hope you enjoyed my entry this week. Don't forget to check out the other Blogger's challenge entries! You can find links to all of their sites in my sidebar.
