Another Faux Big Ole Ugly Flower!

I am loving the 5 petal punch flower thingies that I have come to call "Faux Big Ole Ugly Flower" as a bit of a salute to Keesh's beloved flower. I know it's not really the same thing but tell me you can't see it in there!
I was going for a nice summery simple card with this one and I think I pulled it off, normally when I sit down with something in mind that's when nothing goes right, but for some reason that wasn't the case this time lol.

PS on a NSR topic I just want to give a shout out to my mate Pete! Pete has been involved in Youthwork of some form for as long as I have known him and he has just started a new blog aimed at making Teenagers more socially aware of the world outside their own little safe prosperous bubble. Here's the quote from the top of his page:

"idream of a world without poverty! idream of a world without child slaves! idream of a generation of generous young people who have the ability to change the world and choose to do so, idream of a world that's not consumed with "what i want!", but with what others need, idream of ......."
While Pete's dream of change comes from his faith in God he blogs in a way that is real & genuine without being preachy and I think there is so much to be made aware of, not just for teenagers so I really urge you to drop by his blog iDream and check out what he has to say.

Never been a BOUF fan - but I kinda like your Faux version - LOL! It's such a fin, bright card.

Hmmm, not sure I am a lover of this BOUF either. Just not sure I can make that one work for me. But great card, love that Bali Breeze again!
