Less is More week 55-theme

Whoopee, no stripes or acetate or unusual colours this week at Less is More, it's theme week and we have to use:
                            PUNCHES and DIECUTS!
Now this could potentially cause a problem, getting carried away and forgetting the clean and simple rule!
Strangely enough I  bought two new punches this week so how intuitive was that?
One of them is a ribbon punch and my first thought was that it could be a fence and so that is how my card evolved :)



I stamped the card with a stampendous stamp using a versacolour pad. I punched card with the ribbon punch and created a scalloped edge with fancy scissors. I used stamps by Judith on the outside of the fence and added small punched flowers (my other new punch), a punched butterfly and sentiment. The hummingbird is stamped and cut out.

I'm also entering this in the Stampalot challenge where the theme is In the Garden.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me and hopefully leave a comment so that I can visit you:)
