MC July 12 - Border Punches - Bonne Fete

Well it's definitely been a while since my last post, very unusual for me... I've been in a kind of slump and the few cards I did make, just weren't up to par... I'm jotting down the challenge themes each day and finally one puts a little spark under me. Use two or more border punches, and the rest evolved with other challenges...

anyway to see more details and descriptions, click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using one of the French sentiment stamps from  Quietfire Design

and it fits for these challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge  #201 Anything French
Cutie Stampers  #131 squares (the open work in the lattice punch border)
Incy Wincy Designs  #155 use something not used in a long time or ever (the SB tag die and I don't know when I last used either of the punches)
Inspiration Avenue  Something Parisian or love
MIM Challenge  #58 Color Wheel (purple & yellow)
Papertake Weekly  Anything girlie
Tuesday Alchemy  Use buttons
Cooking it up with Katie #89 BD with blue buttons
Cards & Me Challenge  #93 ribbon & bows
Crafty Creations  #179 Tags
Aud Sentiment  #59 Sentiment on a tag
CCEE Stampers  #12-29 Use 2 or more border punches
Digi Doodle Shops Best  #117 anything goes
Alphabet Challenge  L for Lace
The Old Back Porch  #29 card a week
Simply Create Too  #28 at least 2 times (floral burst border, as a negative, as a white shifted under piece)
All Sorts Challenge  #164 Distressing
Crazy 4 Challenges  #146 stitching
Fashionable Stamping  #26 Messy & Inky
