I've been waiting for two whole weeks for this toucan die to arrive - with memories of a favourite early picture book (Toucan, Toucan), I just had to get it. So despite having had a headache all day in work, I had to get busy when I got home. Nothing to explain, just lots of die-cutting and assembling. Gold pen to edge the upper layer, gold glitter card to frame the aperture. Plan A had been to use some of SU's paper from the same collection, but I soon realised it would make the card far too busy.

This is so fun!! You cracked me up with your opening line! Your flowers are gorgeous! Very clever element for Jen's challenge! For some reason Stacy's challenge really stuck in my head, I couldn't wait to create something! :) This is fabulous for Judy's challenge!

Yay, you got your toucan die! And it looks to me like it was worth the wait. Fabulous card and I love your take on my challenge. I'll have to try that some time :)
Fabulous colors and the toucan joke made me chuckle!

This looks like a prize-winning card to me! The colors and layout of the foliage and flowers are outstanding - the brightness of them caught my eye. Are those real jimmies inside your shaker? I love it!
