This would have to be one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment, and also one of my favourite sets. Combine that with my 2 favourite punches, and I'm pretty happy all round! The colours are Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue. The stamp set is Mostly Flowers...NOT discontinued, yay! I went pretty punch-happy on this card. The scallop is done with the slit punch (#1 fave), the holes for the ribbon are done with the 1/8" handheld punch, the tab is done with the word window punch (#2 fave), and the slot for the tab is done with the horizontal slot punch...oh and I punched the stamp out with a large square punch! I've stamped the background using the same focal image stamp, but just using a bashful blue marker to ink around an individual flower. I then coloured the centres with a white gel pen (another fave!). I needed a white brad to finish it off, so I just heated up a brad (hold it with tweezers so you don't burn your fingers) then dipped it in white embossing powder while it is still hot, then reheat to set.
