Bashful Pumpkins!

I was browsing through an issue of CARDS magazine the other day and saw a card with a similar layout to this and immediately thought "ooh, I bet I could do that with my Thoughts and Prayers tree!" This is the first time I've used the Boho Blossoms punch. I punched the flowers then distressed them by crumbling them and rolling them up then seperating the layers so I got two from one and they are very thin and flimsy.

The color scheme is from last week's color challenge on SCS: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue. I also added some Sahara sand and vanilla in for my neutrals.

Thanks for stopping by!

PS- did you notice the paper piercing? Can you believe the Crafter's Tool Kit (p. 188) is on the "Last Chance" list?!? I am stunned. If you don't have it, check it out- I use it nearly every day!!

  1. This is such a gorgeous card. the punched flowers look great. Very soft and cheery card

  2. Oooo, I like it! Love the little punched flowers. I too, am stunned that the Crafter's Tool Kit is going! I use mine all the time ... waaaah! Maybe they're going to have a different version?

  3. yes, shocked about the tool kit. I can only wonder if we are getting something bigger and better! Love your card! fabulous tree and love the flowes.

  4. This is wonderful! I still have to redeem my SAB rewards, and I think BOTH of these sets will be the ones! I am hoping they will sell the components of the tool kit separately!!! Such a pretty card! Cool flowers too!
