This is for today's technique challenge which is to use punches for the main image. My choice may be a bit standard, but I tried to try something else not so standard. I tried sponging clouds in the sky using the main color of my punched flower and not the expected blue sky. I had made a cloud template using the scallop circle punch. I punched 3 of them out of a clear window sheet, taped them together in a bit of a random pattern and used this as my template. It works really well because I could see through it to get the layers to look just the way I wanted. The base of the card and flower are apricot appeal and I sponged the clouds with More mustard. TFL and for the fun challenge Holly!

Hey, GF, nice to see you in the challenge. I love your card. The flower is awesome and your clouds are great. I do mine the same way, thanks to Cindy (Mothermark), but I never though of doing them on a clear sheet. Thanks for that idea.
