A polo card !!

Hi all

What's polo card I hear you say - simple - its a card with a hole in it lol!

Todays challenge at 

My Time to Craft



Its not something I've made often - though if you have a die cutting machine and a suitable die (or better still I suppose a ready cut aperture card - they are incredibly easy and make a nice change from a straightforward square card which is what most of us stick to these days

I cut this card  aperture with a spellbinders circle die and already had this sentiment in mind to use and it was really the inspiration for the whole card - I think it makes a lovely sentiment for a baby girl card.  So to go with the sentiment I decorated the card with punched flowers.

This is what I did....

Image - LOTV Baby Blanket -available here
Coloured with Copics
Sentiment - part of digi set "Katie" from Stampart by Kathryne at Whimsy Stamps
papers - (pink) - spring drop from first edition and check - LOTV blossoms and bows
Ribbon pearlhearts and pearls  from my stash
Button - Papermania pastel button pack
Flower punches - retro flower from EK sucess and small daisy flower from papermania
leaf punch - Martha Stewart
Die cut label -part of fishtail flag from dienamics
