Sentimental Swirls - Sunshine & Rainbows Thank You Card

 Hi Everyone,

I've made this thank you card for Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights using some of the lovely new products which are available in the January-June Mini Catalogue. The designer series paper (Sunshine & Rainbows) is a Saleabration Level 1 offering (free with a purchase of £45) and the stamp set is the UK's first Million Sales Achiever offering from Sam Hammond Donald, I love it, it's such a useful set full of tiny stamps and great sentiments.

On the long side score the bermuda bay card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the dsp using the largest of the Scalloped Contour rectangles and cut out the 2nd smallest from the smaller piece of basic white. Adhere the dsp one to the card front.

Stamp 5 flowers using misty moonlight ink on scraps of basic white, fill in the flowers using the balmy blue and punch them out.  Stamp the sentiment in the centre of the basic white rectangle and add some of the butterflies using magenta madness.

Adhere the basic white mat, at an angle on the card front using dimensionals and then arrange the flowers around it, some flat and some on dimensionals.  Add some of the rhinestones to the centre of the flowers and a couple on the sentiment mat.

On the remaining basic white, stamp part of the large swirl in two opposite corners using misty moonlight and add some butterflies in magenta madness.
