It's Not All Quirky Black & White...

It's Cazzy's turn to set the Challenge this time, and no, it's not all black and white over on Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog this time round, it's...
black, white and one other accent colour...
use one or more punches!!
(oho, take that! ouch!)
Here's my DT card. I've left off the sentiment so I can change it into whatever whenever, but most likely a birthday card.
I used DoveCraft Papers, Stickles Glitter, and stuff from my stash, The Glittered black butterfly was fixed to acetate first and then adhered to the card with silicone glue.
As you can see by the picture, I've gone a bit mad with the magenta. This I added by colouring some white card with my oldest and favourite colour Promaker pen, (maybe I should have used the paler pink?) then used my Martha Stewart lace punch. I also touched up the pink that was already on the papers. Plus a few flowers I made using Woodware punches, they have velum centres (covered with Stickles) That's about all I can add to this card, I think!
Pop over to see who you picked as overall winner via the voting! (that doesn't mean they've won an overall!) We on the team decided to choose a winner too, just for its real 'Quirkiness' !!
Now, here's a challenge for you! How many different punches do you think I used in the end???
Answers on a postcard, honest...have a guess... email me on dragonsmoore at goolemail dot com or leave a comment. I did have a few challenges for this card but, sawdust brain here has left her little note book at home, so I'll add them later! Now it's time to walk those darn doggies again!!
