P is for punches & pink

Had a lovely week off last week with Andrew, only been in my new job for 2 weeks so I was so pleased that they honoured the holiday. Lovely just to chill in the sun, and potter around. (not sure if I posted on here what happened with my last job, but that's a post for another day) Today is all about the butterflies!

The challenge for this fortnight is P is for punch and/or pink - I used this stamp again, its turning into a favourite, this time I paper pierced it with matching ink to paper - Hot Pink and Christmas Green pigment inks from DoCrafts, the paper was also from docrafts capsule collection. Love the effect.
To incorporate the Punch bit of the challenge, I used a small butterfly punch I had given me - and punched through the white card, putting a piece of the same pink paper underneath to match the Rose.
I've had the backing paper for years and it was one of those I liked but never could never match to a card design. To finish it off, I added 4 little pink gem stones and 8 white pearls in the corners.
Again with the off cuts/inking testers from this card, I made a small tag to match, only adding a stamped 'with love' sentiment in the same Hot Pink ink.
