Dies and/or Punches at CCM

Afternoon Everyone.
We have a new challenge starting today over at CraftyCardmakers.
Maike is our host this time, and her chosen theme is Punches and/or Dies.
I had a fabulous time recently creating my own embossing folders using die cut or punched shapes, so it seemed the perfect card to share with you for this particular challenge.
The sentiment is also a die cut so that counts as well.
The flowers use the same fabulous Sue Wilson die set that found its way into my shopping basket when I was at SirStampalot last year.
I have also used a stencil and some clear texture paste on the background.
The leafy swirls are by Sue Wilson as well.
 As usual I got a little bit carried away using up all of the leftovers.
 I used Frantage powder on the leafy swirls this time,
and here I used the leftover pieces from the die cut sentiment.
I hope that you enjoy our challenge. Why not pop over and see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you.
Happy Crafting and hugs
