a toucan of thanks (Avery Elle spring release blog hop)

*** are you looking for my Neat and Tangled post? scroll down! ***



Hi there, and welcome to Avery Elle's Spring release blog hop!

I'm so excited to be able to show off the Toucan Party stamp set:

Isn't it so fun? I love all of the birds as well as the floral/leafy elements. It's such a well-designed set! I colored the birds in quirky colors and set them up against a pink chevron background.

I drew in some dots with a white gel pen and framed out the focal image strip by adding white cardstock to the top and bottom. The leaf/floral images added some drama, and I stamped the greeting in a dark grey ink at the bottom.

I hope you like it!
