LNS Pink, Green and Yellow Challenge

My husband's nephew and his wife had a baby girl last week, and I needed a baby card to go along with the gift I bought them.  So this week's challenge was perfect for me, and I used these colors to make a onesie baby girl card.  My idea for this card came from one that I saw on SCS, and you can view the card HERE.

I used a regular sized card and cut the sleeves 1/4" down and 1" in.  I used a 1-3/8" Circle Punch for the holes at the top and bottom and then used a Scallop Circle Punch for the accent trim.  It's very easy to punch out the accent pieces:

First you punch out a circle on a scrap piece of cardstock using the 1-3/8" circle punch:

Next you line up the circle in the scallop punch as show below:

Very simple way to make accent pieces and this idea works with a lot of our other punches as well.  I used a lot of punches for this challenge to make the flowers (Boho Blossoms Punch), eyelet trim (Eyelet Border Punch), Sleeve Trim (Scallop Trim Border Punch), 1/4" Circle Punch for the bottom snaps and I used the Bird Builder Punch for the leaves.  Added So Saffron brads in the middle of the flowers and matching ribbon. Here's the details:

Stamps: Pennant Parade (saying)
Inks: Pear Pizzazz
Papers: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dot EF, So Saffron Brads and Ribbon, Punches: Word Window, Boho Blossom, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle, Eyelet Border, Scallop Trim Border, Bird Builder and 1/4" Circle Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Scissors, Dimensionals, Mini-Glue Dots
