    Pops of Color Challenge

The challenge at Some Odd Girl this week  is to use White or Kraft with 2 pops of color. So my pops are purple and teal 🙂 I used a Fiskars Border Punch (another admission… bought specifically for this card, sad I know) and a whole sheet of white cardstock to punch and cut, punch and cut to make this card.
