Roll With the "Punches"!!

We are rolling with those "punches" this week at Practical Scrappers this week. Dust off those punches, border punches, corner rounders this week and show us how you can inspire us to use them. For my project this week I got my inspiration from Scrapbook & Cards Today's Blog using my Martha Stewart Double Loop Border and Corner punch combo set you can check it out here. One punch to create three different looks and they all are just fabulous!
Also to note on this project: I used an image from our May Sponsor *Wink *Wink Ink, called "Blossom Baby". I took a lot of time to create this one embellishment, because I wanted to try something different with a digi stamp. I getting to be pretty accustomed to Inscape and SCAL 2.0 now, so I have ventured out into "color tracing bitmaps". In other words, counting all the different colors you see in a jpeg image, then separating and creating a layer for each color. I was able to create my own SVG image that I could then cut on my cricut and make this paper piercing that you see. The only thing that I did color was the image of the sleeping baby. I actually printed it on glossy photo paper and was able to blend my markers a bit better, since I don't have any Copics yet :( *sigh*
Ok, so here's my LO:

This is my new nephew Logan, who turned a month old yesterday. I actually gave the LO to my sister on Sunday for her Mother's Day gift. It brought her to tears, which was what I was hoping for!

Thanks for stopping in and make sure you check out all the inspiration from all my design team sisters-- they are all truely inspirational and have really rocked this challenge! Oh, almost forgot-- don't forget to enter your own project for a chance to win some of those fabulous digi images from *Wink *Wink Ink!

Oh Kerri, I really don't know where to begin on this one! The layout is precious. The use of punches add just the right amount of a delicate touch. I love what you did with the digital image and Logan is PRECIOUS!!!!
