Phew! I was frantically uploading pics late, late last night to get this one linked in time for the challenge.

I found this stamp set by Anna Griffin in the clearance section at Michael's and have been anxious to get it inked up. The background pattern made me think of a trellis, so I pulled out all my flower punches to see what I could pair up.
The larger flower in the bunch is made from SU!'s 5 Petal Flower punch. I punched it out once and stuck the shape to a sticky note. Then I inserted the paper back in the punch making sure to rotate the shape so that the "valleys" of the punching mechanism were centered along the middle of the the petals on the already punched-out piece. Then I compressed the lever and hoped for the best! The flower centers were also punched using this technique and the Flower Trio punch and the Boho Blossoms punch. If that description was more confusing than helpful, leave a comment and I'll put together a little show-and-tell.

I fancied up the inside of the card with a little trimming of the background paper and another leaf punch. I had originally thought this would be used for a general purpose congrats card, but now I'm thinking it would do nicely for an engagement or wedding...

I love this! Is the background on the pink a stamp? I love the retro mod feel!

Yes, that is a stamp! It's from the Darcey Collection clear stamps by Anna Griffin. The sentiment is from that set, too.

it is amazing how different this card looks when photographed at a different angle. the second pic shows it off in a way that makes the flowers leap. I LOVE this card.
