{Sale-A-Bration Countdown}: Fresh Vintage

We're in the final days of the 2012 Sale-A-Bration and this easy card was created using the Fresh Vintage stamp set, a freebie you can choose with any $50 merchandise purchase... 
I stamped each large flower in the same color as its card stock (I used Marina Mist, Garden Green, and Night of Navy).  The color scheme was inspired by color scheme challenge put forth by the good folks at 365 Cards.  Color Scheme challenges are now a fixture on Fridays!  Hooray!

I inked the white center of each blossom in an opposing color, punched it with a 1/2-inch Circle Punch (remember, Stamp First, Punch Second) and popped it up with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Speaking of punching, I created the flower-shaped piece by using the solid setting of my Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.
Did someone say "punch?"  I created the border of the Whisper White piece with my Eyelet Border punch.  Quick and easy!
