Cutie Pie DT Card - Punches and Dies

It's challenge time at Cutie Pie once again, this time our theme is, "Cute with Punches and Dies" and we're sponsored by Stamp and Create, and A Random Fan.  I didn't think I'd get a DT card made for this challenge, what with my husband being in hospital, but I felt like a bit of crafting when I got in from visiting him yesterday, so I managed to make this one at the very last minute!
 I dug out one of my older Gorjuss stamps for this one and coloured her with Promarkers to match these Papermania Gorjuss papers from last year, I love the rich colour tones, and I enjoyed using a colour combo I don't very often use.  I used a Spellbinders Curved Rectangle die to cut out the topper and dusted on a hint of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink round the edges, concentrating the colour at the top.
The rest of the dies used are all Marianne, I inked the die cuts with Evergreen Bough and Pumice Stone Distress Inks for definition of the embossing, and I coloured the branch brown with a Distress Marker.  I stamped a sentiment using a stamp from an Imagination Crafts set, used a circle punch to punch it out, then inked the edges with more Pumice Stone ink.  A Gorjuss stripy button is the final touch.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Come and Get It - In the Garden 
Allsorts - #252 - Use Those Dies
Alphabet Challenge - D for Die Cuts
Sweet Pea Stampers - Distress it to the Max
