My new flower punch

Hello Folks,

For Mother's Day this year my husband got me some crafty little surprises, including an EK Success Flower punch. It's one of those that you punch on a long strip and then roll it up. I haven't been able to play with it much, but I did make one flower which I used on this card.
I actually made the card first and thought it looked too plain. Here it is before the flower was added.

I used a Doodle Pantry image and some interesting looking paper scraps. I really like the one under the sentiment.
You know that satisfied feeling you get when a design comes together just right? I felt that once I added the flower.
 Thanks for visiting today. I hope you were able to pick up my new image yesterday.

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa

Love, love, LOVE that flower, Teresa! The rolled portion makes such a fabulous center without any other embellishment. I always end up adding glitter or beads or sequins, and now I look at yours and realize how much I love it just plain. I've learned something from you today. :-D Thanks.
