a punchy color challenge, with a twist

 It's Saturday! And  that means it's time for another challenge from Our Creative Corner.
Lori, from The Diva Stamper has given us a color challenge with a twist.  So, here's the colors:  
Ok, so here is the twist:  you MUST use at least 3 punches, and one of them needs to be a border punch! 

Here is my card:

The punches I used are: Curly Label for my tag.  3/4" Circle punch and the 1/2" Circle punch for my 'buttons'.  Scallop Trim Border punch to hold my ribbon.

This challenge was just that for me - a challenge!  Whew!  I'm pretty happy with what I created.   When I first stamped the buttons, I thought that they looked pretty 'flat', so I punched out some chip board and glue sticked the 'button' onto that, to help give them some substance.
I hope the Design Team has given you some inspiration, and you play along with us!
