Quite a list this week & I really got carried away with the punches! I haven't had a play with them for ages! I've tried to create an elelgance to my card this week & I think you'll agree it's quite different. I've sponged an antique white linen A4 folded card blank with a beige inkpad & then randomly stamped some birds & flourishes from the delightful "Silhouette Songbirds" set from Stampendous using the Vintage Sepia inkpad. I have then stamped one of the 4 lovely sentiments from Jane Gill's brand new Clear Magic set of stamps onto a 3" punched circle. This has then been layered onto a 3.5" scaloped punched circle.I have created my 3 main flowers from the oakleaf punch (using Victorian Beauty paper)  by using the daisy punch as a base (this you can't see as it's at the back of the flower). I have attached an oakleaf to each of the daisy petals first scoring each leaf with a DEET & soft embossing pad. I have then added an inner layer of leaves to my flower before finishing each with 2 punched stamens & a turqoise Metal. I have also gently sponged the edges of each flower with the beige inkpad. The smaller flowers are from the Kikyou punch with the Mini snowflake as the centre finished off with a small pearl. The Maidenhair Fern & Fern punches provide the foliage. I hope you like my pretty card!
