A 3 challenge combo

sarah-kay-picnic
Okay, so I'm really back into combining challenges again, but if I don't I won't get half the challenges done that I want to. I'm entering this card in:
Stampavie and More - the sketch this week is amazing!
Dutch Dare - create a card using your favourite things. We all know my favourite things are flowers and charms and of course this new Kaiser Craft paper, mmmm delish!
Stamp Something - yellow green and blue. What a fab colour combo!
 
I had to rotate the sketch to suit the image but think it's okay this way too. I dug out some of my old punches - I think I got this off Create and Craft a couple of years ago and I think I have used it once. Loved the little blossom pattern and it worked so well with the blossom paper.  The embossing is so sweet too. sarah-kay-picnic-1

I punched out some green parchment flowers and dotted around them with an Inkessentials Gel pen then popped a cherry blossom in the centre.

I carried the sketch through to the inside and used some more of the punched parchment flowers, apologies for the colour – the paper is a lot paler than is showing on this picture – cameras!!! Grrrr!sarah-kay-picnic-daisies3
Recipe:
Stamps: Sarah Kay Picnic of Daisies and Autumn Leaves Ticketed
Colouring medium is the usual distress inks and H2O's but I can't find the scrap of paper that I wrote the colours on, sorry
Paper: Kaiser Craft Little Miss Pretty
Tools: EK Success Retro Flower Punch, border punch from C&C (no makers name on it), Nestibilities
Embellishments: Cherry Blossom mulberry flowers, ribbon charm and brads from stash

Thanks for looking,
