Challenge #134 - Dies n Punches!

Hi everyone, welcome back for another theme, and thank you for all your gorgeous animal entries last week! 

I have an important notice before I get to this weeks challenge.  There will not be a new challenge on Wednesday 14th September - we are taking a (one week) break to recharge our batteries!! Next weeks challenge will finish as normal after one week, and the winner will be announced when we return on 21st September.

And now on to the main business of the day - the challenge this week is to:

use 3 (or more) different dies or punches on your creations!

We all have lots of nestibilites, corner rounders, paper punches, fancy edge cutters etc etc -
 lets see how creative you can be!  (Please list the 3 dies or punches you have used in your design).

I am delighted to welcome a new sponsor this week - Crimson Cloud.

"Crimson Cloud is a mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of cardmaking and crafting. We only sell products that we have tried, tested and love using. We have developed our own exclusive range of die cut packs, digital stamps, svg files and "Make Your Own Card" kits which reflect our styles of card making - and hopefully yours too!"

Mel has kindly offered one lucky winner a choice of up to 3 die cut packs from her site.  So for your chance to win, simply get creative and link up below!  Here's what the DT have been up to:

  4. I was in such a rush and in a dither that i forgot to mention the different dyes in my card(s)-I used 3 dye ink stamps for the brown card-antique gold, brown and Apricot brown.
