Punch it for Dad

Punch It For Dad - This weeks challenge at Sew Many Challenges is Punches. This is an easy challenge for me as I have a boatload of punches. MS are me favorites. She really does an awesome job designing them.

I created this card using Sew Many Cards image "Semmy the Snail." He was sew fun to color with my Copic's. I used Stickles on the butterfly to make it sparkly.
My DP is Alleghany by K and Company. Besides the punched border, I also punched the small butterflies and added some tiny pearls to them, using a bronze Viva Deco pearl pen. The hemp cord is threaded through a couple of eyelets. The yellow butterfly was in the spring Seasona; shop at Hobby Lobby last spring.
For today's Friday Freebie, I colored "Flowers For Dad" also with Copic's and made a ribbon bookmark with it.
I stamped the other images with varies stamps and then cut them with Spellbinders. It was so easy to make this bookmark and it is a great gift for Dad.
