Hangin' around to say thank you

…this is probably one of my all time favorite cards!  I saw this idea on Stampin' Connection, a website exclusively for Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  Another perk of being a demonstrator!  Here are a few tips. 1) This card is a lot easier to create than it looks. The stand to the bird cage appears to be connected to the vine but the truth is I was a bit off when I stamped it, even with clear mount stamps.  The bow hides this imperfection perfectly! 2) I used the white gel pen to put a dot in the center of each of my flowers but you can substitute that for a rhinestone or pearl jewel.  3) The punch used for the words and the color behind it are the same punch; the small oval.  I cut a second one in Pool Party and cut it in half and mounted it off center to the words.  This is a great tip if you want to double mount a stamp image or sentiment and you don't have a punch in a larger size.
