 Asymmetrical things are not usually my thing, actually they are the opposite of my thing!  So this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches really has been a challenge, I decided to pair it with another challenge, this one from Colour Q.  The colour challenge provided a different sort of challenge, I don't have any Poppy Parade left in my stash - not to be put off by that I decided to substitute Real Red instead.

Isn't it great that we now have three different sized flower stamp sets and matching punches?  I have used all three on this card because they go so well together, and layer beautifully. I wasn't initially sure of the colour combination, but I like the bright feeling it gives this card.  It is a bit hard to see, but I have curled each of the flower's petals with my bone folder to add some dimension to the card.

Happy Stamping
