A whole new meaning to getting punched...Ooh-la-la


Cuttlebug Challenge #23 brings to you the challenge of "using your punches and the Cuttlebug in other ways than it was intended." How great is that! I must admit I only own three circle punches and a single corner rounder. Don't get me wrong, I like them well enough, they just seem to take up lots of space. In this card I cut a black circle embossed with dots and cut a smaller circle from with in circle and affixed to the corners of the card. The bottom image shows that I used my corner rounder and created an arrow, though I covered it up with a button. Buttons and brad are part of the Ooh-la-la Creations challenge Blog so this meets their requirements also! I really like the trapezoid shapes, they were cut with an electronic cutting machine. I look forward to seeing what others came up with and remember creation diverts destruction...
