Basket Bunch Thank You Card

Hello my friends, and happy Friday! I hope you've got a wonderful weekend planned. I'm excited to see some of my extended family tomorrow, as we celebrate my cousin's birthday. We are going dinner, followed by the Beauty and the Beast movie. I've heard nothing but good reviews, so I'm pretty excited. 

Today's card is one I made this past weekend at my papercrafting retreat in Canmore. Truth be told, my bestie was struggling with these pieces as she was trying to put them together, so I told her to give them to me and I'd give it a go. Sometimes it just takes a pair of fresh eyes to come up with a nice composition. I love that we can work together like that. 
The flowers and sentiment on this card are from the Basket Bunch Stamp Set, which may be a little bit of a surprise. The stamp set looks a little cutesy at first glance, but look again at all those pieces and you'll find that there's more than just Easter bunnies and eggs. 

Big surprise - the Watercolor Pencils are making another appearance. Have I mentioned I love them? They're super easy to use and perfect to quickly colour these daffodils. 

You'll find a full list of supplies I've used and clickable links to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop at the end of this post. When you purchase $50 or more in my shop using the monthly hostess code, you become one of my VIPs. You don't want to miss these fabulous perks - get the deets HERE
