Another April Birthday

My good friend and upline's birthday is in a few short days. She is so sweet and encouraging and I am thankful to have met her! And because she likes to display the cards she receives to show her customers, I wanted to make something with the latest and greatest products. The stamp set (with the exception of the sentiment) and the Designer Series paper is from the new Summer Smooches suite of products that is available as a sneak peek now and will be in the new catalog. It is a very bright and sunny color palette.

For the main card, I used Daffodil Delight cardstock. The layout is from Clean and Simple Stamping FTL#143. Using Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade markers to ink of the flower and vase images from Bright Blossoms set. I popped up the Whisper White panel with dimensionals (although it's hard to tell in the photo). Used the Summer Smooches DSP and edged the panel with Island Indigo punched using Scallop Ribbon border punch. Made a banner out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Island Indigo. Attached a green button to the banner and tied white Baker's Twine to the button. Added a rhinestone to the flower.

And I kept my promise not to use Baja Breeze this time! :)
