Midweek Magnolia - Dies & Punches

Well I'm back but running a bit late with this post for the Midweek Magnolia challenge which the theme this week is Dies and Punches.

I would also like to thank everyone who entered our Olympic theme last week you really went to town with your creations and I  just loved all the different images everyone used especially the none sporty ones.

My excuse for being late is my daughter who is a beautician and nail technician wanted to do me a set of nails to cheer me up as I really don't look after my nails with crafting and then biting them so I now have a beautiful set of polished nails but can't do anything with them!!

As you can see another Oldie has come out to play today and I have tried to so some folds on the dress but not too happy with the finished result need more practice!!!
As always this little beauty is coloured with Pro's, added some glamour dust to her wings and stickles to the centers of the flowers.

I have used my new yummy Prima "Tea-Thyme" papers which are lush I can't get enough Prima papers just love them!  Added black card and the main back paper is from Pink Paisley. 
Well the theme is dies and punches so the image is cut out and layered with my circle nestie and to the side is some perfect green silk ribbon.
For my foliage I have used a Marianne die and some L'em punches.  The sentiment is from Cat's Life and I have used a EK success circle punch to cut it out. 
Just look at these papers lush or what.  Added a few flowers and another EK Success foliage punch.
A side view of the punch and die detail.

Can you believe it three days on the trot with my postings, will say thought that I still haven't caught up  yet with all your blogs I am trying to get back on top of it as best I can.

Its a beautiful day here in Sheffield so I hope that you all have great weather too.

Love and hugs Chanelle xxxx
