First Attempt at Punch Art!

Happy Monday! 
Friday's Mashup #43 is to use something new, so here's my entry!
Yesterday was my son's teacher's birthday. She is such a great lady, and I have gotten the pleasure of getting to know her and working with her when I volunteer in his class.
I wanted to make his card for her fun and special, so I got out my new Send Me Soaring stamp set from the new Mini and my newest punch: Cupcake Builder! I LOVE these clouds! Just emboss some white card stock with the Polka Dot folder and punch out some cupcake tops! 
I did sponge some Bashful blue around the edges. Also if you look close, you can see I took the negative of the cupcake top and sponged some blue clouds on the DSP to make it look like a shadow behind 2 of the clouds. (Ok, maybe you can't see it in these photos... oh well.)
 That kite tail is a tricky one to cut out!
GRASS!! I used my Scallop Border punch and just punched it a couple times over again, alternating the scallops, to achieve the unevenness. The flowers are punched using the Itty Bitty Punchs and Boho Blossoms Punch. Don't forget the pearl centers! ;) 
I decorated the inside! ;) I decided to give it a little heart from the little Heartfelt Embosslit, to match the heart on the kite. The sentiment is from the birthday hostess set.
Here's another view, from the side.  I couldn't resist a Summer Sun corduroy button (long-time retired) on top of my punched sun and tied a little bow with White Baker's Twine.
Hope you enjoy!
