Leafy Wreath Thanks

Hi, Friends......

I am back with one more entry for the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge #39 - Framed with Evelin T DesignsI don't own this set, so I drew inspiration from Crystal's lovely wreath card HERE.  

I also was inspired by the Winnie & Winnie May Color Challenge with this lovely palette:

I cut my card base into a scalloped circle and added leafy elements and the layered sentiment die cuts over one of my leftover Easter egg dye backgrounds.  I added a couple of sweet birds for fun.

I also am entering this into the Unstampabelles - 1-2-3 Challenge.  I have used 1 word for the sentiment, 2 birds, and 3 each of the gold leaves and green leaves.  It has been great fun using Susan's formula for her wonderful no-stamping challenge this month.

Products used include:
Winnie &Walter - In a Word: Thanks Cutaway die
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set
Memory Box - Resting Birds die set
Leftover Easter egg die background
Scraps from stash

Hope you like this sweet card.  I had so much fun making it.....feels great to be creating again.  Thank you for your lovely comments!!!
