Happy Thoughts Card

I was very inspired by Kay Miller's card here and was able to do my own version yesterday. 
Oh gosh, it was fun to play around with the stamps and fussy cut to make them work for me.
The stamp set is from Close To My Heart and is called Happy Thoughts (C1536). It's in the current catalog.
I used inks from CTMH as well, Sunflower, Star Spangled Blue and Moonstruck. Those colors are retired, sorry. The green, Topiary, isn't retired, though! I also did some sponging on the leaves 
I added some gems from my stash and cut a doily almost in half. 
The papers are Sunflower cardstock, and Pebbles' Family Ties 6x6 pad. 
I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 
Some of the flowers are popped up with foam squares. Hard to see, though.
The burlap butterfly sticker is from some new product at Michaels from Little Yellow Bicycle. Naturals is the name on the package. Very fun.

Thanks for the inspiration, Kay!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
