Mo's Challenge #23

This week the gang over at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenges have asked us to use at least three punches on our card or project. I've used 5 different punches here so I know this one qualifies.

I decided to start off by using my scallop circle punch to make the main flower - there are lots of these "scrunched" flowers around and they look fabulous! I've paired my flowers with some punched fern leaves. The sentiment uses my scallop oval and small oval punches and I've framed part of my image with a strip punched using my Martha Stewart punch. Phew - my hand hurts from all that punching out - LOL.

The DP is from my Basic Grey, Green at Heart paper pad.

For some reason I really struggled creating today - hope it doesn't show - LOL.

Have a GREAT week - it's my last one at work and I can't wait to de-stress and craft more - although the kids start a 2 week break at the end of the week too so it may not happen just yet....

Gorgeous card Deb,
You may have had creative struggles, but it sure doesn't show up on the card. I envy her actually...she looks like she is having a lovely relaxing time.

WOW I love the colours you have used, that paper sets it off perfectly. That flower is gorgeous, can't believe it is a scrunched flower using the scallop circle punch and that strip is so delicate! Can't tell you struggled at all!!

I am so jealous you have one week left, you will be on fire in your craft room (well maybe after the kids are back at school!!)
