Punch away at Stampalot

It is the first Sunday of the month and time for another Stampalot Challenge. The challenge this month is to use Punches. Here is my card.
I used a stamp from Ruth's Tonic studios chrysanthemum set, coloured with coloured pencils and blended with a versamarker pen. I stamped the foliage in versa mark and then brushed wild Honey, Picked raspberry and festive berries Distress inks over the top. the flower border is a Tonic studios punch. I then used 2 different sizes of daisy punch (woodware) to make the little flower, which I mounted on a punched circle and added 4 punched leaves(X-cut).
Please pop over to the challenge blog and take a good look at the gorgeous creations of my teamies. I think you will agree that their creations this month are so inspiring. You will also find details of the prize, if not straight away, then in the next few days, hopefully. Looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations using punches. Thanks for looking.

Just reading your blog makes me feel tired. I remember the energy required to teach full time, and adding your travels to that would definitely finish me off. But what a wonderful experience for you. I love this last card of yours. I am looking forward to working with you on Craft A Scene. It looks as though we all have a very different style, which makes for varied and interesting projects. Good luck with the first challenge. xx Maggie

A lot of memories for you to treasure forever. I love the gorgeous warm colours to your card today and the beautiful punchwork too. Hope you are feeling more normal again now.

I like the way you've made this whole card look like a wrapped parcel or fancy chocolate box. The colours are amazing with the inked background & those leaves.
