YNS Challenge #17: Summer Hula!

Hey everyone!

This morning I'd like to share with you my DT card for Your Next Stamp Challenges.  It's the wonderful Maylee's turn to set the theme for Challenge #17 and she has chosen... USE A BORDER PUNCH!

I have used my Aloha Fhiona stamp to create my card.  This fab set includes 7 co-ordinating stamps, including 2 sentiment stamps!  I ordered this Imaginisce 12x12 Strawberry Sorbet paper from the Summer Cool range (item #001134) a little while ago to use especially with Aloha Fhiona as I thought the flowers looked quite 'surfy'!  And of course I used one of my fave Martha Stewart border punches - Scallop Dot.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. OCC Weekly Sketch - OCCSC16 : I have followed this FAB sketch!
2. Totally Gorjuss Challenge 31 - Bling in On!

Before I go, make sure you check out Karen's blog for a fun little YNS contest.  YNS are releasing a whole heap of super-cute new stamps at the beginning of June, and Karen is going to give away a special new release surprise package to one lucky winner!  Hop on over to this post to read about how to enter - you have until 1st June, so be quick!

Thanks for popping by!  Have a fab day, and I'll be back later with my Quixotic Paperie Challenge card.
