Butterflies and Vines

This week, the hostess for the Stampin' B's Design Team challenge #115 is Vicki Dutcher and she wants us to use a border punch. I really love this EK Success English Ivy punch and thought it would look pretty with the butterfly wheel I used.

Hope you'll play along with us and use the inlinkz tool  at our blog linked above.

This week Stamp Something wants us to have something punched...well, I love that as I love using my punches so I am happy to play along
