The circle image was stamped with the triple flower from Stampin' Up!'s Spring Solitude set (Basic Black ink). Using Nestabilities Circles and a Cuttlebug, I cropped it out and added delectable Dew Drops in a palette of pink and yellow colors. TIP: A white edge can look bare. The edges of the circle were sponged in Regal Rose ink to give it a "finished look." Another crop of the Nestabilities Scallop Circle and the main image was complete.
The horizontal banner's branch was stamped in black. Using my handy Stamp-a-ma-jig, I landed the Regal Rose bird perfectly on the branch. It was then layered on YoYo and Regal Rose card stock.
The 4.25 x 5.5 card base is Regal Rose. YoYo Yellow was embossed using a Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and layered on top. TIP: Reminiscent of the Word Window Punch (this is a lovely way to fake it and make it any length you want), the sentiment is a long 3/8" wide strip of Regal Rose, with one end snipped off courtesy of a Corner Rounder Punch. The Stamp-a-ma-jig got one more chance to shine as I added my "Thank You sentiment in just the right spot. One more little Dew Drop balanced things out and added a last touch of dazzle. Far out 🙂
