Pile It On! Challenge - Dies and/or Punches

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we want to see you use your:

'Dies and/or Punches'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Doctor Digi's House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 digis of the winner's choice!

I've made this card for the daughter of a friend of mine who will be turning two at the end of next week...using a cute Lili of the Valley stamp called 'The Lost Balloon'...she has a 'bit of a thing' for bunnies...and it's perfect for combining with my Die-namics 'Balloons' die. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the papers ('Bake a Cake' by Jennifer Ellory that came free with a craft magazine), and doodled some simple borders around everything using a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts, I used my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet dies to cut the number '2', the twine is from the Ribbon Girls, and the brad (tethering the die cut balloons to the card) is by BasicGrey.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
