Time for something totally different

... to my usual stuff. This is not my normal style of card at all.... but this is my latest submission for Kristina Werner's challenge:






I went very literal in response to her challenge. But I did get a bit creative with my punches... anyone want to guess which ones I used? There are four different ones.

Here's Kristina's original colour challenge photo:





But I had fun creating this one, so maybe when creativity is hard to find, it's not such a bad idea to go with a literal translation? Have a great day guys!

Round tab punch, word window punch and corner rounder for the scalloped edge?!! Am I right?

Hi Linda,

I think the 4th punch is the small circle punch to make the holes in the scallops. Is this correct?!!

I had to come back to guess again!

Hope you are having a great day!

What a great card, this is one of the best I have seen for this challenge. I guess the punches are tab punch, circle punch (1 1/4?), window punch and corner rounder. Wow you have just done so well, what a clever idea!
