SOS92: let's get punchy!

specifically, at shopping our stash this week, we're challenging you to use your *BORDER* punches. because i bet you have at least a few; and maybe even a couple you haven't used in a bit? you miiiiiiiight even have one that's still in the box. well, why not go and get those babies out, dust 'em off, and use one or more on a card, a layout, a tag, a journal page or... well... whatever you feel like making today. i made a card. because that's what i do! :)

(bird, frame and speech bubble: bam pop; patterned paper: creative imaginations, glitz designs, crate paper, american crafts, dcwv, basic grey; chipboard alphas: american crafts; alphabet rub-ons: scrapworks; border punches: ek success, fiskars, recollections, martha stewart; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
you can see i chose the "OR MORE" part of the "one or more" option. that's because i have lots of lovely border punches, they are actually one of my favorite tools! since i was making a card for my uncle, i eschewed all the flowery and lacey ones, but i still had enough to make a super-stacked border, using up loads of scraps! something else i had sort of forgotten about was my beloved bam pop birdie paper, a sheet of which i found while looking for something else, so i decided to put those feathered friends to good use. since just ONE birdie might get lonely, i brought along a couple of friends for him, they live on the INSIDE of the card!

speaking of friends, i hope you will go and see the amazing work of my fellow DT-mates over at shopping our stash! off you go, darlings, and be sure to tell them all how AWESOME they are! ♥
