Swirly Bird, May 2017 Paper Pumpkin, Thank You Card

I've still got my May 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit sitting out.  I know that surprises you!! LOL  I never seem to put anything away, that is why my workroom and my house is such a mess!!!  I look back about 20 years ago when my house was spotless!!  What a boring life I had back then!! LOL

Now onto how I made this card.  I used a folded half sheet of Blushing Bride cardstock for the base.  Then I added that frosting looking stickers from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I used two of them.  I did rip a few of them so I could only have the bumps showing on the outer edges.  

Next I cut one of the blue "donuts" apart and taped it in place on top of the "frosting".  Then I added a paper doily.  Next I die cut a swirly nesty looking thing from the "Swirly Bird" thinlits using the darker yellow donut from the kit.  I taped the swirly thing in place on two sides. The 9 and 3 o'clock positions.  I knew the word ribbon would hide it.  

I took some of the gold and white twine and wrapped it around my hand and formed a circle with it. It looks like a total of three wraps.  Then I took a glue dot to hold the circle round.  I did that at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions too.  I set the twine in place on top of the swirly thing.  

Next I stamped the words from the kit onto the blue ribbon piece that was also in the kit.  I set that in place using Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the center of the flowers that I had punched out with the punch that went with the "Petite Petals" set.  I added some of the yellow dots to the center of each flower, those also came with the kit.  I die cut some leaves and added them behind the flowers and then set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  It was pretty simple to make.  I think it took me longer to think of what to do with the pieces than it did to assemble the card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
