Stampin Royalty Challenge #17

This week's challenge over at Stampin' Royalty is to 'use your punches'. I was completely inspired by a swap I received from Heather Nedig in the recent DSP swap that I participated in. Please scroll down to the bottom of this post to see her card. On my card above the paper was from the Welcome Neighbour DSP pack from Saleabration. I punched it out with the large oval punch from SU. I sponged the edges of each oval to give the flowers some dimension. The bottom of each tulip was made by first punching out with the 5 petal flower punch and then taking the punched out shape and putting it in the 1 1/4inch circle punch. This gives the rounded bottom to the flowers. The whole thing was mounted on Confetti White cardstock. The bow was made with Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain ribbon tied with linen thread. Then I added the button and the tag. The tag is from the Tiny Tag punch, and the sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set. I used the Ticket corner punch on the corners and mounted the whole thing on Regal Rose Cardstock.
