Mother's Day card using Triple Treat Flower stamp & Lots of Punches!

Hello, I copied a Christmas card my good friend Annette Wen sent me to make a Mother's Day card.  My friend, Cami came over this week and we made 19 cards together.  It took about 30 minutes per card, which is kind of slow for batch processing. But since these had beads and they were "art" cards, the time wasn't too bad.  The basic materials are cheap, but the design uses many expensive punches.  To save money, you can buy just 3 new items, the Triple Treat Flower stamp $9, 5-Petal Flower punch $17, and Fancy Flower punch $17 for a total of $43.  All other elements are optional and can be substituted with other punches, dies, or stamps you already have, or just eliminated.
