Punched Blossom

Here's my card for Freshly Made Sketches #40.  I've been working on some cards to use as invitations to my upcoming Stampin' Up Open House so I thought I'd use some sketches as inspiration.  I'll be posting them over the next few days.

I took a little different approach to the sketch by cutting out the focal point rather that adding it on to the front of the card.  I saw this idea somewhere else, (and I wish I could remember so I could give credit), and thought this would be a good sketch to try it out on.  Here is the sketch.

The cardstock used was Whisper White and Pacific Point, the DSP is from Beyond the Garden.  The embossing folder is called Stripes, the stamp set is Mixed Bunch and used with the Blossom Punch. The Ribbon Punch was also used. The sentiments are from Loving Thoughts and Occasional Quotes (inside). All by Stampin' Up.  Here are a few more shots of this card, as well as another version.

Hope you like,
