Iris Says Punch It

Wow, I can't beleive how quickly my DT term is coming to an end at Iris' Spot?! This is me second to last card for Iris, and I have had so much fun being a part of her DT.

We have another new challenge for you, today at Iris' Spot. Our theme this week is to use punches. This week, we are being sponsored at Iris' Spot by the wonderful Lauretta, from Lauretta's Digital Stamps! Be sure you play along with us for your chance to win!

This theme was an easy one for me, because I am a self-proclaimed punch addict! I love love love punches! I decided to try and do something funky and different with the punches this time. I'm not sure if I succeeded, but I wanted to experiment. The image is from Lauretta's Digital Stamps and is colored with Promarkers. I used the large flower punch by Stampin Up and made bunch of them in solids and patterns. I arranged the solids in all sorts of ways behind my image. Then trimmed piece of the patterned punched flowers to fit on the solids. It has a cool effect with the funky flowered DP. Speaking of the DP, that funkiness is from my stash, as is the funky glittered ribbon and the glittered flower by Prima. A pretty pink adhesive pearl is the finishing touch for the flower center. I added glitter the heart image and to the flower centers on the DP.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
