I can't believe it ... I used Flower Shop and the Pansy punch for the last card I made for Cuttlebug Mania.  Can you tell I love this stamp and punch set?!!??!!  I found a sketch that I wanted to use from Paper Craft Crew #141 (see below) and immediately thought of flowers.  I had another flower in mind but they were a little too large for the space so I grabbed Flower Shop and began to play.  I chose the patterned paper I wanted to use and began playing around with ink.  

First I stamped the pansy in Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush.  They looked good but not too impressive.  Then I pulled out Daffodil Delight, again it was okay ... I decided to stamp off the Strawberry Slush and used the second generation of the stamp for the flower.  That looked pretty good.  I added some Blushing Bride on top of that and it looked really good.  Tempting fate I added more Blushing Bride and I really loved that look.  The middle flower is done with second generation stamping of Strawberry Slush and several Daffodil Delight stampings.  The additional stampings are not done exactly over the Strawberry Slush, but turned a bit on each stamping.  I love playing with ink and paper!

Here are the supplies I used:
Stamp sets:  Flower Shop, Four You (retiring), Simply Wonderful (retired SAB) and Better Than E-Mail
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White and All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink:  Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Strawberry Slush
Misc:  Spring Flowers TIEF, Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, Pansy Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals and SNAIL adhesive

I just purchased/received this same background floral embossing folder and am already in-love with it. It was used for a piece that I blogged about last week, but your card was the first one I've seen online to use the same folder. Lovely card with a bright color combo, too.
