dies or punches

This week Simon Says Stamp's challenge is to use dies or punches.



There were a few leaves left over from the collage I made yesterday using the Tim Holtz tattered leaves die, so I decided to use them for a birthday card for my son.  For the background I used Hero Arts real leaves clear set.  The sentiment is from an old HA boxed set called Birthday Fancy Notes, which is one of my all-time favorites.

And, I just got these gems from Hero called black pearls.  There are two sizes on the sheet and, to me, they have the look of an abalone shell.  I will be ordering more of them, for sure/

Thanks for visiting!
