How many punches can you use?

I've been frantically working on my Leadership Swaps for Palm Springs - can you say last minute Lucy! Yep, that's me....Leadership is next week, and I just started my swaps today! I've had some ideas in mind, put nothing concrete. So what does my work area look like for these swap cards? Well right now it looks like this ----------->



Here's my finished card







This was the original card I designed- but I just didn't have enough flowers from the Pretties Kit to complete my swap cards, so I replaced the Pretties Flowers with the Three for You Punch.









Now back to my "how many punches can you use"? I used the following punches to create this card
* 1/4" Circle
* 1/2" Circle
* 1 1/4" Circle
* 1 3/8" Circle
* Designer Label
* Scallop
* Three For You
* Large Oval



Stamps - A Beautiful Thing, Baroque Motifs

Off to finish these cards and start on my second design....


ETA - I think I may be a little punch happy....I added a 1/8" vanilla circle to the center of my small flowers...What do you think?

It's wonderful and although I think it'd drive anyone crazy, the extra 1/8 inch punch adds an extra touch...so with or without would be beautiful!

Great card. I think I would leave the last punch off tho, but I do not have the most creative eye in town either. You did a great job with all the punches.

That first picture with all the pieces is just wonderful! Reminds me of my childhood where I had some sort of craft game that contained so many little pieces, hehe. The card and color scheme are delicious!

Beautiful card with or without the extra punch but I would keep it in. I think it balances it out perfectly. Love your work.

It looks fantastic! {SMILES}

I love the card both ways but the added punch on the flower really makes it POP! I would leave it!

Great card and I love the punches galore idea. I like the card both ways -- w/o the light centers the card "pops" more, w/ it seems to be a bit more subtle and formal. So there you have my opinion!

fun card. I like the lighter pink one best.
I think light centers in the flowers would be better...maybe leave out the dark circle alltogether? who knows without seeing it that way. LOL!
maybe a white layer behind the saying, too (In place of the pink one?).
Whatever....it's GREAT as is!
