Frustrated? Well punch Away!

That's right. Just punch out your frustration with some punches. Grab those small scrap papers and make them into pretty shapes to Ohhh and Ahhh at. Then file them away for those quick and easy cards. AND...you can use some for this weeks Digital Tuesday Challenge. That's right...the challenge this week is to use PUNCHES!
The fantastic sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. The winner will get a $10 gift certificate to choose images from 3 different designers, Stitchy Stamps, Mizumedia Designs and Panda Bear Designs.  MY! What a selection they have too. There are beautiful sketch images, fun line images and anything in between.

The design team had the privilege to choose 1 of three image to work with. I chose Sparkles, though I am not really into fairy's, she is just to cute to turn down.

Just look at those beautiful eyes, hair and pretty wings to color. How fun she was to make a card out of too.

I used a sketch that I found while surfing blogs. I was sure I book marked the site, but now can't seem to find it. I guess that is one challenge I will not enter this week, lol.  I do not often use sketches, but will more often. It took so much less time to make the card knowing the design I was going with. Beside choosing out pattern paper, that is the hardest thing about making a project for me, creating a design.

I am off to go through my scraps and punch away! I am so much looking forward to seeing all the entries.

OHhhh...and don't forget about our super BLOG HOP next week for Digital Tuesday Challenges 100th Challenge. Believe me when I say you won't want to miss it!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Corrosive Challenges: Magical creatures
Cute Card Thursday: Shiney Happy Cards (I used glitter)
Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Sparkle, glitter, bling
Paper Play Challenge: Add Shine
Inky Impressions: Spots and stripes
Pile It On: childhood dreams
