Happy Day Betsy's Blossom

More play time tonight as I work to keep the creativity flowing!! Need to come up with four ideas for Open House creations very soon! Tonight, I combined the SUO Challenge "For the Birds" challenge with the sketch from  Freshly Made Sketches. Here is the sketch


And, the card I came up with.



The card base is Rich Razzleberry, with a Daffodil Deligh accent layer behind a Floral Distric DSP background. I opted to go with a regular size card even though the sketch appears more square. "Regular" size just works better with my display baskets and such :)

On Whisper White, I using the Betsy's Blossom stamp set, I stamped the large flower in Rich Razzleberry, the bird in Daffodil Delight, and two leaves in Baja Breeze. I cut those out and layered together. The bird is attached over the leaves with dimensionals, and the entire element is attached to the background with dimensionals. 

I really miss the Movers & Shapers dies when it comes to adding the sayings. I would have used the punch and coordinating die, but since that retired, I just layered the scallop like we do the Decorative label punch, punch two and cut one in half vertically, and one horizontally and layer behind the punch. Worked OK. Two Daffodil buttons are the final accent.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
