Punches, dies, and diamonds...oh my + BLOG HOP

Let's see if you are on the right path... If you came from Carla's Blog, you are doing wonderful. If not, then please start at Guylou’s Inimitability or refer to the blog hop list at the end of this post to get you all sorted out. The hop will open on May 4th at 9:00am EST and end at 9:00pm EST on May 5th.

By leaving a comment on my blog and all the participating blogs, you will have a chance to win one of the grand prizes:

A Guylou's Inimitability $25 gift certificate 

Second prize 
A Color Me Creative Classroom: one Copic class (winners choice) 

Third prize 
A Guylou's Inimitability $15 gift certificate

We have a great news to share; we have a new member on our team: Carla. I have known Carla only through her participation in our challenges and through The Outlawz forum. All her creations are stunning. I am in awe of her talent and I feel so blessed that she has accepted to join our team. Welcome Carla!!!

For our regular challenge, I prepared the above card. Tracy challenged us to use punches, die cuts and bling on our projects. I used Serena plays her guitar. I like this image because she is fresh, cool and modern. I personally play the guitar and that little image reminds me of me when I was much younger. Oh the memories!!

I used a Spellbinder die template for the image and mat and used a punch by EK for the border. I love that punch because of the fleur-de-lys which represents my French culture. I added little pink diamonds in the center of the fleur-de-lys and a little bling star in the top right corner of the image.

The challenge starts today and ends on May 17th at 10pm. Remember if you use one of my images, you get two entries in the challenge. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed it! Your next stop is Guylou’s Inimitability and then you are done!

What an enjoyable blog hop Guylou! I bet you look just as gorgeous as young Serena here when you play too :) Your card is fabulous, just as all the creations along the way have been--I joined every one of the ladies blogs lol! Super inspiring and although I'm new to your company, I have a feeling I'll be a regular customer from here on out! Your designs are really great--unique and fun, mixed with pretty and versatile too! Love em--thank you for offering freebies for new peeps like myself or those on a tight budget, that's so kind of you! I will def play along in this challenge and have had a fantastic time being inspired by your DT and getting to know the team as well. They are all so sweet and obviously brimming with creativity! Thanks for all the fun to kick off this weekend! Big hugs and smiles! :)
