Double D - 4th Anniversary Celebrating with some Punch!

It's a new year of crafting and celebrating at Double D

We are celebrating our 4th Anniversary 

With some 'PUNCH' We want to see some poor neglected punches used.

There is always a board to help get you going. 

The Prize

I was inspired by the colors on the board and the fact that this is a celebration of an anniversary. I kept my colors light and wanted to create a party on my card.  Here in my Florida craft room, I have no punches, but I think a die could be used as well. This die is from Sue Wilson and it is called Shadowbox celebrations. I love this die cut as it can be used for so many celebrations.
I have neglected it.
This will be used as an anniversary card when I need one. 
I used the Power Poppy stamps set called Dream Wedding with my brand new Arteza watercolor pens.  Boy, do I love them! So easy to use on watercolor paper. You will be seeing more of them on my cards.  I am pretty sure of that.

This inside was completed for this card as well as an envelope.  The finished card is 5X5.
I added some swiss dots to the envelope leaving white space for the address.

We are off to a great start and you should see what we have in store for you this year. 
Be sure to see what the team has for your added inspirations at the Blog

I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year for 2020!
