I am still on a kick of making cards with punches ;-) .. I made the front of this card to look like a flower in the pot, and on the inside I tried to make it look like a window.. What do you think?

I used Dahlia Fold technique to make the flower, I just love the dimension this flower has!! The leafs were made with Marvy Scalloped heart punches. The base of the flower pot was embossed with Cuttlebug, the scallops were done with Fiskars border punch. The leafs behind the button and on the inside of the card are the Martha Stewart punch. The absolutely GORGEOUS designer paper is by Studio 45.
