PP103 - Color Challenge - Friendly Phrases

This week, The Paper Player has a color challenge from team designer Anne Marie who is the hostess for this week's challenge and perfect for summer theme card. In addition, it gives me another chance to work on another card and design.

Once again, I went for my punches creating the card below. If you would like to join, click here to go directly to the challenge.

Here is mine below:
Punches are one of my favorites so I figured to create another flower and got to use one of the new Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons for the center of the flower.

For this flower, I punched out (4) 1" squares using Daffodil Delight, than a 3/4" square punch in Calypso Coral. Since I wanted to add some white to it, I cut a 1/2" strip of whisper white and cut out (4) square with the strip.

For each square, I used a corner rounder punch on 2 opposite ends except for the white. For that, I eyeballed with scissors for the rounding. Finally, added (1) Stampin Dimensional under each petal and placed them to create the flower. 

Here, I added the scallop border using the Adorning Accents Edgelits using Lucky Limeade and Blossom Petals Builder punch with Build A Blossom stamp set for the leaves. For the steam, I cut a 1/2" strip and colored in the stitched lines with a marker.

Designer paper was 2011-2013 in colors (Calypso Coral) and the new 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain in Daffodil Delight. Other ribbon used was the 3/8" Ruffled ribbon (Calypso Coral). Embossing folder: Finial Press (retired)
