I thought of the lovely Tropical Leaf set and punch with this theme for the blog hop this month and I wanted lots of punched on my card. I love this bundle and it is so easy to use with many different colors. I went for Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party with my color combo and love how it turned out. I stared with the Orchid Oasis base and then punched lots of the same color card stock with the leaf punch. I added them to the base and any hanging over, I cut off with the snips. It gives a awesome textured background that is better than just embossed. I then cut a white Deckled Rectangle and stamped the stems in Parakeet Party ink. On another piece of white card stock, I stamped the leaves and veins in Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party inks. I punched those three out with the leaf punch. I also stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink on a piece of Orchid Oasis card stock and heat embossed it in white embossing powder. I used another fab punch- the Double Oval punch. I finished it off with some Parakeet Party dots.
