Joan's Challenge #21

Did you see where I won last week at Joan's Garden!!!!  I'm still dancing, I get so excited when I win, don't you???  Her challenge this week is :Use pink and white,Use an Embossing Folder,Use a die for an opening on the front of the card.  Use leaves as accents
Mine I used Cuttlebug's Perennial embossing folder with a window in it, (which I ordered from Joan ages ago), then I used spellbinders Foliage, Martha Stewart's Fern punch , a flower punch and a Wild Orchid Rose.  Oops, I also used a corner punch that I haven't used in forever, I still have trouble with those, never get them to fit just right, anyone have any hints????  Okay, that's it for now, just wanta say thanks for the sweet comments about my kitchen, this house was build back in 1972, the kitchen use to be all gold........I hated that!!!  We talking, sink, counter top, applainces, every thing!!!!  Now you can understand why I I'm so pleased with this make over, I did paint right after we mover here 10 years ago, but it was time to paint again, next I may paint the bathroom....................

Oh, Olga, This is the most beautiful card! I sure hope you win this week too! I love the flowers, the embossing, the colors, everything!

I've got one of those corner punches too, but I'm not very good with it. Mine isn't fancy like yours. The way you used it really adds something extra to the card. It sort of gives your embossed panel a different shape the same way as a Spelbinders die would.

Never thought of using coral for the color of the leaves - love it and will have to try doing it as well. Lovely card.
