Punches and pearls...

So, I was totally inspired by a few cards when I made this card.  Like this one by Loll.  And this one by Ruth.  I wanted to use this layered flower look and make a holiday card and make some layered poinsettias!  You'll see more layered poinsettias in the future methinks...

Here's what I came up with~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~





I used some patterned paper by Basic Grey (it's called Hello Luscious) and punched out flowers with a SU! punch and layered them together.  The leaves are also a flower punch by SU! that I trimmed to create the leaf look.  I LOVE it!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card! I sure you hope you like what you see!  Please join in the fun at these fabulous challenges--have fun and happy stamping! :)

Another fabulous card my dear friend, the flowers and paper used to make them are incredible as is the design. The embossing is such a lovely contrast. Thanks once again on joining us at ATS&M and good luck.
