Retirement Parade Continues - 5-Petal Flower punch

My stamp club ladies know that I am a nut for punches. Largely, this is because I am lazy - too lazy to fussy cut much of anything. So punches are perfect for me. The coordinating punches and stamp sets are some of the many things I love about Stampin' Up! Today, I pay homage to one of the punches that is retiring at the end of the month - the 5-Petal Flower punch.

The sketch for my card comes from Sketch Frenzy Friday. I also played along with The Paper Players challenge this week. I chose diagonally - Flowers, My Choice (bling), and Designer Paper.

  •  Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)
  • Ink -Basic Black (101179)
  • Card Stock - Pear Pizzazz (119795), Rich Razzleberry (115316), So Saffron (105118), Whisper White (100730)
  • Designer Series Paper - Pocketful of Posies (122354)

  • Tools - 5-Petal Flower punch (119880), Boho Blossoms punch (119858), Modern Label punch (119849), Word Window punch (119857)
