CTO - Challenge #9 Easter or Spring

Hi Everyone,

Today's challenge over at CTO is to create something for Easter or Spring and you must use a punch.  I decided to use the new stamps I just received from Stampin' Up - Easter Blossoms.

I love this stamp set and decided to make a series of 3 cards using primarily only Stampin Up products.
Let me know what you think.....

Cardstock - Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, White
Yellow Polka Dot Paper - Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack Subtles Collection
Ink - Melon Mambo and Whisper White Kraft
Embossed w/Cuttlebug - Texture Textiles
Ribbon - Crushed Curry
Diamond Stickles
Brads - Old Olive (SU) & Pink (Misc)
Sentiment/Stamps - Easter Blossoms
Punches - SU Scalloped Oval, 1 3/4"x7/8" Oval & 2"x1 3/8" Oval
