Bye-Bye Flower

I hope this Wednesday finds you well.  Me, I had a very productive day off.  So, I feel this new energy and I have found my creative spirit.  I need a day off from work, here and there to re-charge my batteries and get a chance to play 'catch-up' with chores.  So, I started my day-off, by creating this card.  I made some Candied Mix-Nut clusters, and several Pumpkin Cranberry Bread, for a Bake Sale at work, today.  I got some laundry done.  The kitchen is cleaned, as well as other house work.  I made a delicious home-cooked dinner.  And relaxed  during the evening, and watched some TV.  See, a day, to re-charge and take care of some chores!
Now, for a little creativity!  The Design Team, over @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge, have been busy creating some very inspirational cards for you!  So, why don't you join us in another wonderful week of creativity!
Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my card:

It's May, and so there are quite a few products that are retiring from Stampin' Up!.  I just love this DSP!  We all had an opportunity to purchase the Everyday Enchantment DSP.  The stamp set that I used for this card, Notably Ornate, is on the retiring list, too.   I used the Top Note die to create the fancy rectangle piece.  I used the scallop circle die to create the 'flower'.  I used Pure Poppy card stock for the largest scallop circle.  I made an accordion flower using the First Edition DSP.  The smaller scallop circle was created with the Everyday Enchantment DSP.  I stamped the bird in Pool Party classic ink and fussy cut.  I punched two tiny flowers and added them to the bird, using a brown brad.  The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede classic ink onto a piece of very vanilla card stock cut into a banner shape.
Thank you for looking.  I hope you have found some inspiration, and join us this week, in our sketch challenge @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.
