Punch Challenge...

Hi all - here is a card that I made for a Team Challenge. We were challenged to do something creative with punches.

I had thought and thought about it for a week or two but not actually sat down to give it a go.... Then one arvo while waiting for a friend to turn up, I sat playing with some scraps and some punches sitting on the table (no, I usually don't get round to cleaning up after I play LOL) I was playing with the idea of how one punches a shape (in this case, the scallop) then re-inserts it, turns it slightly, and punches again. And before I knew it, with the use of the Spring Flower Bouquet punch also, I had these lovely flowers sitting on the table beside me!!!!

The grass is cut free hand and the sky (can't see it too clearly) has been sponged with Whisper White to look like clouds (another idea I had seen ages ago and took a few goes ie: binned pieces LOL, to get it to look how I wanted).

I was really please with how the card turned out in the end.
