The Hotspot Challenge - Laser Cut Details

Well here we're at the beginning of yet another month, isn't this year passing so quickly?

It's time for another challenge over at:

This month the focus is on a trend in fashion - laser cut details.

We are finding this detail in our accessories, our footwear and our clothing so I'm sure with all of those dies and punches out there you can all come up with something fabulous!  Hope you have fun with this one and we look forward to seeing your entry.

Here's the card that I have created using one of the McMahon Five Designs digital stamps from their Wedding Collection which has been coloured using Promarkers.

I've used one of the Martha Stewart "punch around" punches highlighting with a small flower stamp, threaded ribbon through finishing off with a bow in each corner.  The sentiment is from the Lily of the Valley "for you" circular sentiments set.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - die cuts and lace
Paperminutes - quartet
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - wrap it up with ribbon
Cheerful Stamp Pad - a special reason
Crafty Cardmakers - love, the lasting kind
Paper Playtime - wedding or love theme - WINNER
Card Cupids - ribbon
Paper Sundaes - vintage or shabby chic
Secret Crafter - clean and simple
