Punchy Flowers

Lately I've been really taken with my dies and rightfully so. Dies are the bee's knees! They are versatile and much fun! Wildman loves to help whenever I pull out my Big Shot. It's fun for kids and adults. But, yesterday I looked on the shelf and I saw all my sad little hand held punches. It was pitiful. I thought I actually heard a little sniffle come that direction! So, today I was determined to use my punches and show some love. So, I was delighted when I saw the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog site. A spring card inspired by Pinterest pictures. There was one with an egg shaped cake with dark fondant and brightly color circle sprinkles. I let the paper spirits move me and this is where I ended up...

 
I decided to do a birthday sentiment so I could use the card for the Verve Stamps blog March challenge too! I was happy to be able to create the card for both challenges!  I like trying to use birthday stamped sentiments as I am part of the BRAK(birthday random acts of kindness)  team at SCS (splitcoast stampers). I will always use birthday cards for that group.
 
I simply punched circles in concentric sizes outta pattern paper, clipped "v's" round the edges and stacked them. I then pierced the center with different brads. The leaves were cut with a die - but no circles were made to cry by this act of punch defiance. I promise. I added bakers twine to the embossed cream layer and then pulled out two coordinating safety pins and stuck them thru the twine knot. Easy Peasy Punchy Flowers, huh? So, that's gonna be my submission for the Wednesday Challenge. Man - I love me a good challenge!! TFSB
