MC Mar/11 - Punches - Bonne Fete

One of the challenges below was to create a card with only a sentiment/quote and no stamped images. So I used lots of die cuts, punches and texture to create an interesting card. Another challenge was the color palette and the rest just evolved.

I'm using a Quietfire Design sentiment from the "Français" Set. Bonne Fête or Happy Birthday...

The flowers all start with circles and are punched with a corner punch. You can see my tutorial for them HERE. I also used circle under the rosettes. That butterfly flower has 7 layers. I really like the way this card turned out.

I think I forgot to mention on my website that I put a strip of Sookwang tape on either side of the sentiment and added cool highlights glitter.

Anyway you can click on card image to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.

And it fits for a bunch of challenges:
