Lime with Lace

I've been at it again. I worked on this card this weekend during a mini-crop at a friends house.
This is for the Card of the Month swap on the Cricut messageboard. The "challenge" for the month of December is Lime with Lace. I'm posting a little early because I actually have them done way ahead of time, very different concept for me.
I was excited to have a reason to purchase this paper. It is green, my favorite color, and the spirograph design took me back a little. The paper is by KaiserCraft, Spirograph P347 Rosette. I couldn't resist. I purchased the P344 Spiro paper too. They have great second sides on both papers so don't forget to take a look.
I am guessing that a few of you remember trying the spirograph kits years ago. I couldn't get a completed design to save myself, so I think this paper is letting me cheat a little. I think my parents still have the kit somewhere in the basement of their house. Maybe I should take a look and see if I could complete a design now - huh.
Anyway, the lace part of the card was punched with a Fiskars boarder punch. I choose the Effervescence Border Punch. I don't buy a lot of border punches, but I thought this could be used for more than just a lacey border.
I was also lucky that my sister forced me to take a look at the $1 rubber stamps at Michael's last week. I found the perfect spirograph flowers. The stamp is by Janet Dunn for Studio G. For a $1 I thought I got a great deal.
The finished card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
