Getting Punchy with PMS!

Paper Makeup Stamps' Monday Challenge this week was to use punches or die cuts. Tangii came up with this idea, and I'm glad she did because it got me to use a couple of these die cuts I've had from SU forever! I think I may use them more now that I've finally pulled them out!I'm in an autumn mode...can you tell? This is my favorite time of year! We had a BEAUTIFUL fall weekend this past weekend and I was just lovin' it! (Perfect for football too...and the Bills won, Christi!!) Anyway onto the card. I used the PMS Swirlie Tree image and colored it with SU markers in chocolate chip, old olive, really rust, and only orange. I like how the tree trunk looks...it sort of came out like a real one. The dp is also a retired SU one called Autumn Vine. I paired it with pumpkin pie and chocolate chip. The sentiment on the old olive circle (also a die cut) is a PMS one stamped in chocolate chip. I added embossed dots on the bottom of the card, some bling, and some star dust stickles on the tree. The sketch is Beate's weekend sketch from this past weekend. I just changed the orientation a bit because of the way the tree was "swaying"!
