Punchy Flowers

Hi there! Another week has flown by - my past few days have been dominated by a visit from some family (yay!) and some unexpected car issues (boo!) but I finally got time to stamp for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner, which I'm hosting again this week. This time it's a color challenge with a twist. These are the colors:

The twist is to use at least three punches, and at least one has to be a border punch. Don't be scared, it's not hard! :) I easily used four on my card and it wouldn't have been hard to use more than that. I do love my punches! My layout is from Pals Paper Arts, who have a sketch challenge this week.
Here's my card. I decided to feature the triple blossom punch; each flower has two layers plus a center that came from one of the bitty punches. I added a silver brad in the center of each flower. For the stems I used the branch from Cheep Talk (which is retiring! I'm so sad about that one!). The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes and I stamped it inside one of the Four Frames images. (Not much longer and the new catalog will be live - I can't wait! This time of year is always bittersweet, LOL!) My designer papers come from the Brights and the Evening Soiree packs, and I added some retired Regal Rose 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. The border punch is non-SU.

I hope you will come check out all the team members' work this week, and then join in the challenge! We love seeing your creations every week!

I think your use of Rich Razzleberry is perfect! LOVE it! I have seen some pretty things done with the new punches, but nothing as wonderful as your card!
