Cute Card Thursday #180 - DT Card

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in on my blog today - I really appreciate your visit. I hope you like what you find here.
You might remember that last month I was priveledged to be given a guest DT spot on Cute Card Thursday. Well, I have been asked to join the Design Team permanently. Imagine my surprise when the offer was made - of course I snapped up the opportunity before they changed their minds. So this card is my first as a full DT member.
The theme for this week's challenge is

Pinch and Punch

so we want you to get out the punches and see what you can produce. 
The image I have used is "Wreath of Leaves" by Hero Arts. I have heat embossed it using copper embossing powder. The design paper is "Summer Breeze" from 1st Edition by Mindy Terasawe and I have used brown bazzil as a mount. The flowers are punched with a retro punch and I have used two Martha Stewart punched for the borders. The ribbon and stickles are from my stash.

I have included the second photo to show the strip of design paper in the inside of the card.
Why not pop over to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge blog to see the fabulous creations from the DT and join in the fun.
I hope you like this card and that you might have time to leave a comment to let me know what you think of it.
Now that the holiday with the family is over I hope to be back to normal blog visiting and commenting today - I look forward to seeing what you have all been creating while I have been missing in action.
Stay safe and healthy.
