Happy Thoughts card

I bought the new Garden Blooms die from Paper Smooches and was anxious to try it out.  For this card, I diecut the flowers three times from white cardstock and adhered the layers together for a little dimension.  Then I die cut the flowers again from some patterned papers and pieced the insides of the flower die cuts.  The little birds were stamped on plaid paper also, and the sun was stamped and then fussy cut.  I used a stitched die for the grassy base and stamped the sentiment in black, then sponged yellow ink on the edges.   The clouds were sponged with a stencil and white pigment ink.

I like to create little scenes on cards, and this one hopefully is bright and cheery enough to give someone a smile!  I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use patterned paper, and the Happy Little Stampers June Die Cut challenge.
