The Paper Shelter Challenge #230 Punches and Dies

Good Morning and welcome to the first Challenge of the new year from The Paper Shelter. I hope you all had a great New Year and received some new crafting goodies from Santa or treated yourselves in the Boxing Day/January Sales! I got a few bits for Christmas and also spent a fair bit in the sales too! But I promise not to buy too much more in the next few months to make up for it!

Anyway our challenge this time is to use punches and/or dies on your projects. Nice and easy, right?! I use dies on almost every project of mine, so that bit is easy and I love my Punch Around The Page Sets from Martha Stewart, so pulled one of those out to make a very pink thank you card using the adorable So Sweet for my old SU upline, who sent me the patterned paper as a thank you herself!
