Fun with punches!

Had a blast today playing with my new Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch!  I had pictured this card in my head and can't believe it came out even remotely as nice as I had hoped.  You just never know if an idea will come to fruition or not.  Thanks to a variety of SU's punches, it wasn't hard at all.  In addition to that new Blossom Bouquet punch I also used:  Spring Flower Bouquet punch (retired) and the Itty Bitty punches.  I layered these plus a few pearls and the narrow Daffodil Delight ribbon on top of a partial Top Note and called it complete! 

The color scheme here is from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge (I'm beyond exstatic to be back to stamping and enjoying fabulous challenges) to use Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.  I also used many "itty bitty flowers" which is just what is on tap for the Splitcoast Ways to Use it challenge for Friday. 

I hope you'll enjoy the inside as well.  I'm on a roll completing both outside and insides! 

Thanks for stopping by again!  Be sure to visit again tomorrow for yet another card this time featuring a certain new embossing folder.  ;)
