Dies and punches at Penny Black & More

Here we are half way through the year already, where do the months go? This month the challenge on Penny Black & More is "dies and punches". You don't have to use a Penny Black image or sticker but we do want to see some stamping as the main focal point on your card, and please no digis.
For my DT card I've used PB4036K Poppy Poem. I inked the stamp using several different shades of red and green and then spritzed it and stamped directly onto the paper to give this washed out look. The sentiment is from flonz stamps.
I used pink paisley papers and taking a flonz border stamp embosed some detailing around the edges with a cranberry embossing powder. I used A2 distressed edges, basic latice and deckle circle small spellbinders together with a SU round punch. adding some twine in green and red.
Thanks for looking and I do hope you can join us in our challenge this month. As always there are some wonderful prizes on offer.
