MAWTT - Dies or Punches

Hello... it's Thursday and the turn of Team B once again at

our lovely Jessie is hosting this week and she has given us a fab theme of

'Dies and Punches'

We would like you to use either a die or punch, or both, as a central feature of your creation.

I've used a Die Cut Spellbinders Heart (which I've embossed) as my central feature... and I've also used a Martha Stewart Heart Edge Punch for the borders. The gorgeous paper is Papermania Botanicals and was a Christmas gift from my daughter. Heart Doily, Paper Bow and Gems to finish off.

I think I will keep this and give it to my daughter for Valentine's Day as it's her style of card.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's sparkly creations this week!!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!
Sorry I am not around much at the moment. My bronchitis has flared up yet again and my mum still isn't too good and so crafting has had to take a back seat. I'm hoping things will improve soon. Roll on Spring! I don't like it very hot... but I do like it a bit warmer than it is now!! Lol
Take Care
Love and hugs
