CAS-ual Fridays...Punches or Dies

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use punches or dieson your clean and simple card...the challenge:
This week's sponsor is Lawn Fawn!
And Lawn Fawn is giving a wonderful prize of a $25 gift certificate to the winner of this week's challenge!!  Not only have they offered a wonderful prize to the winner of the challenge, but they gave all the Girl Fridays some of their products to have fun with!! Check out the CAS-ual Friday blog and Facebook to be inspired!! We Facebook Girl Fridays were given a selection of Lawn Fawn's latest papers from the Bright Side Collection with some wonderful hemp...

Beautiful papers...full of color and flavor..so many colors and  patterns!!!  I was especially smitten with the rainbow of pretty colors in the selection, so my cards (I made a couple) will reflect those colors...I just kept seeing beautiful rainbows!!
The rainbow of chevrons  is made with Lawn Fawn papers...pretty...right?!!!  I used My Favorite Things chevron die with a W Plus 9 sun stamp and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink Up Up and Away Sentiments.  I stamped the sun in More Mustard and cut out and layered on chipboard...as I did the stripes...to give it all dimension.
 This card uses the Lawn Fawn papers and Lawn Fawn teal colored hemp.  I punched the flowers and dotted with matching rhinestones.  The stems are one stamp from Rubber Soul and the sentiment is Papertrey Ink Beautiful Butterflies.  I layered on black, tied hemp around panel a couple times(knotted in back and crossing in front) and popped up on card. This is the very same layout I used with last week's card...a versatile layout:)!!
Hope you can join in the fun with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays...I'm trying to "punch up" this week's challenge...it's to "die" for...oh I'm too funny:):)!!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
