Punched Flower Birthday Card

Every crafting stash needs a couple of great flower punches. Punches make it easy to add detail to your card designs. This Punched Flower Birthday Card was made using the Blossom Punch and Mixed Bunch stamp set from Stampin' Up! The inspiration for this card came from the Tuesday Trigger: A Plate of Pretty Poppies from Moxie Fab World.

To create this card I punched the white cardstock, then stamped the coral cardstock and then framed the image.  The 3/4" circle is stamped but it's hard to tell from the photo.  I went with a monochromatic colour scheme to keep it simple.  Sometimes, I'm a big fan of the less is more approach.
