Crafty Calendar DT post - punches and/or dies

Another new challenge over at Crafty Calendar for this new month. It's use punches and/or dies & we are sponsored by:

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.

I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Anne Lise and Bettina along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

We were sent some lovely images to work with, I chose 'Smile it's your birthday'.
I printed the image off & coloured using watercolour pencils.
I had a ready made box card so decided to dress it up a bit using my Spellbinder Sapphire & a selection of dies.
Once I had die cut everything I needed & cut out the image & sentiment I arranged everything into the box.

I hope you can join in the challenge - pop over & see the other DT's lovely makes.

Thanks for stopping by.
