Die Cuts & Punches Blog Challenge for The East Wind

Happy May! Wow, the year is going too fast! So much to do and so little time! We have a new Challenge starting for you today over at The East Wind. And it's the first of the month, so if you are on the mailing list, there's a freebie on it's way to you for this challenge! The Theme this time round is 'Die Cuts or Punches'.
I have coloured the freebie image in pastel colours using Promarkers. I added some Picked Raspberry DI around the edge and the sentiment too. The patterned papers were a magazine freebie and I have inked the edges of those too. The flowery one has been die cut at each side, using a Tim Holtz Bigz 'On the Edge' die - a notebook page at one side and torn paper at the other. I inked up a doily for behind the image and I've finished the card with a pearl spray and some die cut layered flowers from Craftwork Cards.
Unky has created a fabulous Image for this challenge and I hope to see you joining in and having a go!
I will enter my card in the following challenges -
