True Friend Punch Bunch Flower!

Today is one of those great days to be inside making a card! It's rainy and windy outside, got the fireplace going inside... No pressing plans for the day, so why not have some fun creating?

I decided to use the SAB set, Punch Bunch. And I used the Fancy Flower XL punch.

I made the large flower first - I kept seeing the "true friend" being the center of a flower. I used Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

I used the Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice folders to give some more texture to the flowers. And, of course, a little Shimmer Spray on some of the different layers too - hope you can see some of that in the pictures!

I had to get a little creative for the So Saffron flower centers. (The Saffron flowers are made from the little Flower Fusion Sizzlets die for the Big Shot. - love those little guys!) I didn't have a punch with me that fit for the center - so I decided to do a little tearing from scraps. I kinda like how they turned out though - something different.

Another thing I didn't have with me was a border punch. So I used my 1" circle punch and did a make-do border sticking together a bunch of them!

Thanks for stopping by,
