Grateful for new punches

Here I have used three of Stampin' Up's eight new punches, and the new Cropodile--which ROCKS! I used the Photo Corners punch, the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch, and the Scallop Circle Punch, my favorite. I used the Cropodile to do the dry embossing (on Chocolate Chip Cardstock). The new Cardstock is Sky Blue, paired up with Sage Shadow and Apricot Appeal. I used the a SU clear button and Linen Thread as accents. The stamp sets used are Dotten Autumn and In the Spotlight.
