it takes...

Hello friends!!  Happy weekend!!  Popping in with a card that I made for a few challenges:  April Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try, and Color Throwdown.   I'm trying to get better at looking at my stamps and dies and trying to figure out different ways to use them.  To that end I used two of the stamps from the RC set Fresh 'n Fruity to make my little trees.  I really like how they turned out.  The little tree trunks were die cut using the RC Branch Out Confetti Cuts.   The sentiment is from the RC set Love Blooms.  I thought the sentiment from Love Blooms was perfect to use with my little trees.  The panels were die cut using my Spellbinders plain rectangles and long rectangles dies.  I really like the finished look they provide and need to remember to use them more.  The main panel was die cut using the Avery Elle Dotted Elle-ments die.   The double ended banner was die cut using the banner from the RC Tag Me Confetti Cuts set.  In order to get it as long as I did I partially cut one side of the banner, slide it over to the other side and then finished cutting it.   I layered up all the different panels and the banner.  Then I had to arrange the little trees... which took a bit of time, lol!  Finished things off with a few orange enamel dots.
