Stamparctic

The challenge at StampARTic this time is :-

"We keep testing the boundarys so this time we challange you to make a card without using bought decorations.
A small, small amount of either pearls, brads or bling are ok, IF you have to use it but try not to.
We want to see those homemade decorations now ;).. Or maybe do a card without any decorations at all...?

Punches, dies, scissors, handcutouts and so on are welcome in this challange.
You can´t use ribbons, lace, flowers if they are bought, you have to make them yourself :)".

*******************************
I decided to use nothing bought other than paper and punches/dies. The paper is from Costco and I made the flowers with round nesties, cut the borders with the MS punch and the leaves with Leone Em punches.
Check Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard for a turtorial on how to make these flowers.
I really had a struggle resisting putting pearls in the center of the flowers but suceeded by using the Leone Em stamen punch. I've just realized I used a stamp - the sentiment.

Love the flowers you designed -- they are stunning and the card, as always, is amazing. I "almost" could have participated in this challenge with my latest card as I made all of the flowers with punches and die cuts --- except, ahem, there's that ribbon....
