£1 punch lilacs or wisteria

I saw a card made by Olga on the poppystamps blog and fell in love with the idea and concept but the dies were no longer for sale so when I saw a mini flower punch at hobbycraft for a £1 I thought it was worth a try and this is what I came up with.

I coloured a sheet of copy paper with some lilac ink I have some ink pads that are on their last legs and then I punched out hundreds of the small flowers. I used the same technique as Olga to make my drooping flower heads. 

I added some die cut leaves, and cut out a section using a corner die from memory box distressed baptisia set.

 I finished off my card with one of my itty bitty bees and will be using this for a summer anniversary card .

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

crafty friends - anything goes

As you like it -favourite flower and why

I love daisy style flowers and this wee punch demonstrates why as so many
flowers are made up of daisy style petals so really there aren't any flowers I don't like

the pencil case -anything goes

not just cards -anything goes

LMM -anything goes

Squirrels world - anything goes
