Delightful Challenges "Punches and Dies"

Hi everyone....It's time for a new challenge at Delightful Challenges.  We had some wonderful entries last week for our challenge and the theme this week is:

"Punches and Dies"

We have a wonderful Sponsor with us this week:

Cut n Paste Memories
For my inspiration card I chose to use a wonderful image from Digital Delights by Louby Loo called "Buttons the Clown". 
I used Copic Sketch Markers to color my image and added some "Stardust" stickles for more shimmer.  I cut my image out with a Spellbinder die as well as the green mat behind the image.
You can really see the shine in this photo.  I added some red and white polka dot ribbon along with a ribbon threader button.  I added some punched balloons and twine as I also did on the inside of my card.
I also added a sentiment to the inside "personal message area" and again used a Spellbinder die to cut it out and mat on red cardstock.  Back on the front of my card, I added corner dies, some gems, plus red and white star brads.
