Mixed Bunch in Wisteria and Concord

It seems that the Mixed Bunch stamp set with coordinating Blossom Punch is one of the most popular stamp sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog!   And with good reason!!  I'm definitely reeled in by coordinating stamps and punches myself, lol!!  This card is a sample I created to show at my workshops this month as we use this set and punch for our Make and Take card (which will be posted at a later date).  
The color scheme is Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush and Whisper White with some Daffodil Delight added.  I used the daisy-like stamp and one of the flower centers (there are three of each in the set); the yellow flower was stamped on a yellow print paper from the Attic Boutique Designer Paper package then punched.  The Wisteria (lighter) flower was stamped with Concord Crush and the Concord Crush flower was stamped with Whisper White CRAFT Ink then punched.  The centers were punched out and layered over the largest flower punched with the BoHo Blossoms punch.  Aren't all these punches wonderful how they can layer together to make different looks!!  I love my punches!!
Here you can see a close-up of the flowers; Glimmer Brads were used in the center of each.
The Wisteria Wonder polka dot is from the Sweet Shop Specialty Paper package; not only is it cardstock weight, each white dot is embossed too!  It's NICE!  It is die cut with one of the larger Label Framelits then adhered to the Concord Crush background.  A swath of Concord Crush 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon wraps these together.  The card base is Wisteria Wonder
The "Happy Easter" greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set (one of my go-to word sets!)  It is stamped on white then cut in a small banner and the edges are sponged with Daffodil Delight ink.  On the inside you'll see a narrow strip of the polka dot DSP added to carry the design through.

Such a pretty card, Margaret! It's nice to have a flower punch that matches the design in the printed paper! Also, I like the peek of the polka dots inside your card! It's fun to dress up the insides of our cards too!
