Punched Floral Birthday Card

A few times I've told you about the demo only magazine we receive monthly from Stampin' Up! called Stampin' Success.  It is chocker block full of inspiration and awesome ideas.  The Aug 2011 issue is no exception.  There is a scrapbook page that has lots of floral embellishments on it made using the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch.  I love to make use of my punches in other ways, and was inspired to create this card......
All the flowers have been made using Stampin' Up! punches: Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" circle punches. I used the now retired Sweetest Stem Embosslits to make the leaves, but you could just as easily use the Little Leaves Embosslits, I just had to use this one because I haven't used it yet!
Stamps:  Very Verstatile (sentiment)
Ink:  Early Espresso
Paper:  Calypso Coral Patterns DSP
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
Other: punches listed above, Champagne Mist Shimmer Spritz (on the early espresso flower centers) Basic Rhinestones
This card was very labour intensive, but really fun to make.  A bright, happy card.
The cardstock sizes are:
  Whisper White 8.5 x 5.5 folded in half
  Early Espresso 1-5/8 x 5.5
  DSP 1.5 x 5.5
Happy Stampin' and thanks for visiting!
