This card is a triple challenge card, I have done a few of these and realy enjoy combining them...I have done this card with this weeks colours, using the Sketch Challenge and it is also a birthday card, making it eligible for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
I coloured the Ketto image, which was a RAK from a friend, using chalks then sponged around the layers adding brads to the corners. I added a strip of DP and my new Fiskar Border Punch, which was part of my Mother's day presents...I love this punch...I am sure it will be very versitile!
I have also added some paper piercing, which I seem to be doing on every card lately, but it adds so much to cards, you know how it is when you need something but are not sure what! I then embossed the sentiment.

A triple challenge Linda!!! Great going girl! I LOVE your card. The colors are nice and cheerful and I, too, love paper piercing, so I never get tired of it. Oh, and that new border punch, LOVE it and I know you will get lots of uses out of it. Love your coloring of the image, the brads and the papers you chose. Isn't it fun getting new stuff to play with??? TFS Linda. This really is fantastic!
