Sir Stampalot Challenge, Punch It.

Hello guys, yes its that time again the Sir Stampalot Challenge, can you believe that a month has passed so quickly, I have been a bad blogger, as some of you know I have been without my laptop, But its mended now so YIPPEE, I cant believe how I have missed it.
But you will have to bare with me as this time of the year I am trying to keep on top of a large garden, and I am stupid enough to be decorating as well at the moment.

Anyway the challenge is Punch it.
here I have used just one Martha Stewart punch loop edger I have laid it down using the pink card and stood it up using the turquoise card.
the flower I have made using ribbon.
the scallop is cut out with the big shot on chipboard.
and the swirls are magenta chipboard which I covered with my paper which took me forever,with lots of small files and emery boards.
I can not tell you what my papers are as I only had a few bits left if anyone knows can you tell me.
Anyway peeps This is what you can win!

can you believe it because I can't.
