A Dozen Flowers


What do you get when you combine a dozen punched flowers, 5 brads, one chipboard element, cardstock and more designer paper?  One busy card! 

This one is for the Finally Friday challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket and kwernerdesign.com.  The challenge was to use punched elements.  In her card, Kristina punched her elements from many different designer papers from the same pack.  I did the same using Basic Grey's Offbeat colletion.  Each of the dozen 5 petal flowers is a different paper and I still had a few left over!

The sentiment Love, Laugh is stamped in a circle in the center of the lower right flower.  My original idea was to follow the video and make a background of my punched elements but they just didn't come together as I'd envisioned.  They looked better as true flowers. 

It's a busy card but I sort of like it.   I think it is very upbeat and may give this as one of the special birthday cards I need for September. 

Happy day to you.  Stay cool and dry wherever you are.
