Punches, More Punches... and Basket Weave!

Morning paper crafters!! Well, it's mid-week and spring starts this weekend... :) So I thought I would share a card that is whimsy, springy and using a variety of SU! punches. This card works for the Cuttlebug and Punches Challenge this week. Also I used the Cuttlebug Weave Tutorial for a "Basket Weave" look on my flower pot!!

This card was started at one of Julie's SU! card classes. We used the Candy Lane DP with Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and and Pretty in Pink. I changed up the card with adding a Perfectly Paisley embossed background, and did the weaving for the flower pot. Also added some leaves using my SU! 5 petal punch. Then I added my sentiment with a couple brads.

Please don't forget to support the SCS Cares Non-Raffle for the Victorian Bushfires Appeal. I understand more wonderful prizes have been added to have a chance at winning! Spread the word!! I hope you enjoy my card and have a super day at hand!! Think SPRING my friends!! It's coming... SMILES!
