Dream Valley 38 - Punches and Dies

This week at Dream Valley our challenge is to use punches and/or dies on your creation.  We have some wonderful examples from the DT so please go check them out.  We have two great sponsors for this challenge.  First we have a £10 voucher from One Stop Card Crafts, and our second sponsor is Inked Treasures who are offering 4 images as a prize

I decided to get out my ancient X-Cut Impress Alphabet dies and created the words Happy Birthday using DP from American Traditional Designs in Pastel.  These were stuck down onto pink card cut using Nestabilities Labels Four.  I die cut another matt of card using the same die in cream, adding some lovely polka dot ribbon inbetween.  The bg paper is from the same pack of paper.  The little flowers were punched from pink card and DP using a Woodware Daisy punch and an EK Success Retro Flower punch, and then giving them pastel brad centres.  Finally I added the cute little dog from Penny Black Critter Party set, stamped in Stampin' Up Early Expresso and then watercoloured using Whispers Pens.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges - Birthdays
DRS Designs - Dogs
Diva's By Design - Flowers
Crazy Amigo Challenge - Dies and Punches
Kaboodle Doodles - Birthday or Special Day
Challenge Up Your Life - Everything goes
