Simply Stampin' Challenge 3

This is my card for this week's Simply Stampin Challenge blog. The theme of this week's challenge was Easter. I have use traditional Easter colours of yellow and green for my card. The Stampin' Up stamp set I used was 'Live your dream' and the ink and ribbon colours I used were Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

I begun by stamping the main flower image in Pear Pizzazz. I stamped the flower heads again and also the butterflies in So Saffron. I attached the flower heads with brads. I cut out the image and used my Stampin' Up small circle punch to punch out the corners. I mounted this onto green and So Saffron card. I stamped the greeting using 'Fast and Fun Notes' stamp set.

I stamped the background pattern using the small flower stamp from the set and Pear Pizzazz ink pad. I mounted this onto green card. I also stamped a flower pattern panel in So Saffon. I punched a strip of green card using Stampin' Up Eyelet border punch. Onto this I added the patterned strip and So Saffron ribbon. To finished a stamped two small flowers and punch them out with my small circle punch.
