Sunflowers and Sunshine

Here is a punch art card I made last month that really used punches (as opposed to dies).  This card idea was a CASE of someone else's card but that was last month so I no longer remember whose or where it was so you could compare and contrast hers to mine.
I know mine is not as CAS as the one I copied.  I have a busy designer paper on mine and an in-your-face embossing folder instead of something subtle.  Then I added microbeads to the center of my flowers for added interest (more fuss, more muss!).

I recently saw a similar card to this that featured three snowflakes in the punched out areas.  I guess that's allowed since all those people back east just can't stop with the snow already.  Personally, I've moved on to sunshine and sunflowers.

The Fine Print: Greeting stamp by Endless Creations, greeting punches by Stampin' Up, flower punch by EK Success, and embossing folder by whoever made it. Yeah, I'm chock full of info like that.

It's snowing outside my window right now, but I have so moved on...
I think the flowers and vines work very well together, almost like the flowers are growing right off that vine.
