This was a neat technique that I saw on Debbie Henderson's Blog.  You can make your own texture plates.  See Debbie's Post here.  Here's what I did with it!  Can you see the faint blossom images in the background?  In her tutorial she actually used a die to cut out her "chipboard", but I used a thin cardboard and punched out the blossom punch on it.  Either way :)  I also wanted to add that you can take 3 of the modern label punches and criss cross on top of the blossom punch to make a fun layering.
