Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge 'Punch it'

Hello blog friends, it's time for our LOTV challenge, this week we're using punches, dies, whatever to create some shapes. I almost always use some sort of punches, or die cut shapes for most of my projects anyway, they're so much fun! 
I chose this little guy with a sailboat for my card today.

He's colored with pencils, quick and easy. I decided to use different patterned papers to create a sort of 'scene' around the image. The waves were cut using a MFT die-namics from Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper, the 'sand' is some kraft colored Crepe paper, and the sunny yellow cloud paper is also Cosmo Cricket. 

A few little wool felt clouds cut with a PTI die complete the scene. I also added some strips of red striped ribbon to resemble flags that might be on a sailboat, or at least, I think I've seen something like it on some kind of boat, lol!

The sentiment is also from LOTV, 'Happy Circular Sentiments'. 

I hope you can join in on our challenge, we'd love to see what you come up with for the Punch It theme!

Thanks for stopping by!
