Gorgeous Grunge Background Splash

Card made with Stampin'UP! Petite Petals and Pansy Punches, Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and Delicate Designs Embossing Folder
The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set makes a fun background on this card. Some light pink (Pink Pirouette) and dark pink (Rose Red) overlapped  adds some interest in the open space without distracting from the flowers.

The punched flowers really do grab the attention on this card.  The small punched Petite Petal flower centered on the larger punched flower (made with the Pansy Punch) makes a really pretty combination. Add a bright yellow (Daffodil Yellow) center and you get a great layered look.

TIP: Get double duty from your punches. The leaves on this flower were also punched with the Pansy Punch. Punch in green, then cut it apart and layer behind the flower.

This card has lots going on. The Grunge stamps add some background color - and the bottom of the card has some background texture - created with one of the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired
