Blossom Petals Punch

Good Tuesday Morning to everyone!  I am loving this new punch by Stampin' Up! called Blossom Petals Punch and you can do so much with it.  Actually what inspired this card was two challenges from Christian Paper Crafts.  First of all their Color Monday Inspiration Challenge.  You can see the inspiration photo here!  Also the other challenge is their Tuesday Sketch Challenge and you can see the sketch here!  I took a little liberty with the sketch by not using all the layering, but you can still see where I got my inspiration.

I took all the petals on the flower and sponged them with Cherry Cobbler and then the leaves I sponged with Pear Pizzazz.  This is one of the few cards I actually cut to 5" X 10" and folded in half to make a 5" card.  I just usually stick with 4 1/4" square if I am making a square card and then it fits into the A2 envelope size and there is no additional postage.  With most square cards there is additional postage.  So since I make so many cards and try to mail as many out as possible, I do keep it as easy as possible to mail.
