Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Flower Shop - Color Coach Card #116

Cherry Cobbler #1


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I am participating in a fun Pinterest challenge too this week where Stampin' Up! have challenged us to use a selection of punches on our projects. The punches on my card are the Pansy Punch and the Hearts Border Punch. 

I used Color Coach colours of Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Calypso Coral. They are all quite strong colours so I used a lot of white here to give it balance. The centre of my flower is a pom pom from the Calypso Coral pom pom trim. :)

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:
