This card is for a couple of challenges. One is the Alphabet Challenge Blog where this week is "P is for Punches." I used two punches on this one, the border and the flowers. Both of the punches are from EK Success. It is also for today's challenge at 365 Cards. Their challenge for today is an ad inspiration challenge. The ad is for Williams Sonoma and features a vase of tulips in front of two books. I love the simplicity of the ad and the colors, so I wanted to do that with my card. I used brown for the base of the card and cut a 2 1/2" strip of green paper that I punched on both sides. I layered my shimmery white punched flowers on the green paper. I ran a piece of white paper through my Cuttlebug, using the Script Texture embossing folder. I then rubbed some Tim Holtz Distress Ink over the top of it, first in Antique Linen and then with Walnut Stain. I thought about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but decided against it because I really loved the simplicity of it and how it turned out the way it did.
