Thanks to Giogio's HYCCT challenge today to use 3 or more punches or die cuts plus a focal sentiment, I got to make a card using my "style" as described in HYCCT1201A.
I've been reminded several times lately that I haven't been using my grass punch so I knew that was one element I would use on today's card. Punched it about 4 times on two shades of green. Using the Little Leaves die 3 times, I made a flowering shrub with flowers from the Birds & Blooms set. Then sprinkled a few small blossoms that had fallen to the ground.
To make it even more cheerful I stamped this sunny sentiment and sponged the bg with some sunny yellow inks. Even though this is a more detailed card than I usually make, I still thought it looked too plain, so I added the pearls. Now I'm happy!
