The East Wind Die Cuts and Punches

Happy May Day!  It's time for a New Challenge at The East Wind with the theme

and the team is using the fabulous new May Freebie called Love Mom.  You can get her at no charge just by subscribing to the Newsletter.  Check out the big hot pink banner on the left side of the Challenge Blog to sign up.  I've made a double center stair step card (at least I think that's what it's called).  The gorgeous die cut gates on either side are Spellbinders exclusive to Heartfelt Creations and I've used several Cuttlebug border folders to emboss the steps.

Here's the beautiful Freebie, perfect for Mother's Day.  I've colored her with Copics, fussy cut and popped her on a Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Oval.

Here's the side view.  Sorry about the pix.  The day I photographed was partly cloudy and so they're kind of dull and full of shadow.  The circular tag is a Cuttlebug Emboss Plus folder backed by a Spellbinder's scalloped circle and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.  Be sure to check out the fabulous work by my teamies and I might also mention that the current Facebook Challenge just happens to be Mother's Day so I hope you enjoy this latest Freebie and have a chance to enter there too.

I'm entering this in the Digi Makeover For a Special Lady Challenge, Die Cuttin' Divas Make it Girly, Paper Pretties Mother's Day/Spring, and 613 Avenue Creates ATG.
