Are you looking for some punch art? Look no further. Split Coast Stampers has a great sampling of punch art. Get your punches out and make some punch art. Check out this website

For this card I chose Level #3 Hostess set Kind & Caring Thoughts (115324 p. 16).
I used Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Bermuda Bay card stock; Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper (#115673 p.163) for one of the vases and the Scallop Edge for the strip on the right side of the card.
I used 1/2" Circle, Large Oval; Small Tag, and Scallop Edge punches ( page 186). Stampin' Dimensionlas ( p. 192) for the vases and the 1/2 " circles for the 3-D effect.
What a fun card to make and I love the colors together.

Happy Stampin' and take time to leave me a comment.
