Sunshine and Flowers

I recently saw a punch art card while searching the internet for inspiration. I wish I could find it again, so I could give credit to the person who inspired me. The card had flowers made out of circle punches. I decided I just HAD to make those flowers. And what better reason than for Paola's Punch Art card swap on SCS.



I also used a punch to remove the top right corner of the layers on the card front, to reveal some bright yellow sunshine.




And of course the flowers needed a bed of grass in which to reside, so I used a Martha Stewart grass punch to create t hat.

I hope Paola loves getting flowers, because these cards are on their way to her house right now.

Great card! I love the fun colors and theme. How you layered the circles is just perfect. Would not have thought of that myself!

Your cards will be a swap hit! Thanks, for sharing.
