Pretty New Punch


Today I have made a quick and easy card for you.  The size is 5x7".  The background was embossed with the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder.  A piece of 4x6 inch white card stock was punched with the new Martha Stewart Large Double Arches punches.  This is a gift I received for Christmas and love it; isn't it beautiful!  This was attached to a piece of black card stock.  The JustRite greeting from the "Baroque Nested Frames" set was black embossed and added to the center of the punched border.  I made a bright pink vellum flower for the embellishment and added some punched leaves and branches. 

I'm trying to get a head start on some of my birthday cards for the new year. 

Joan and I are planning some fun things for you this year.  The first challenge will start this Thursday and she will be announcing some of the new things we are planning.

The products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens
