Dies & Punches

Today over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge, our hostess Valerie Wilson challenged us to use at least one punch and one cutting die.  My punch ended up being hidden a bit by my image, but I did use a large scalloped punch as well as Spellbinders Circle Nestabiltie around my sentiment.

I chose Eric as he reminds me of my son from the neck down.  Shorts & shirt in the freezing cold weather.  The more I was working/coloring Eric thought he looked like he was having a "Bah Humbug" season and that this sentiment would be perfect for him. It's very difficult to tell, but I used 2 additional stamps on the background of the cardstock.  Can you guess which ones??? 
If you want to cheat, the answer will be below :-)

Come join us at Stampotique Designer's Challenge with your creation and your chance to win a $30 gift certificate from Stampotique.  This will be our only challenge this month and it will be open to any stamps as long as you use at least one punch and one cutting die.

I used the FTTC94 sketch for this creation.

How fun is this! The layout is excellent and I really like the brick paper - sorta pulls all of the colors together! Great use of the punches and the die cuts - and, of course, the stamps!! Your coloring turned out perfectly!
