Can I just tell you how stinking cute the June Key Ingredients Kit is??  Oh my word - these papers and ribbon and buttons and bling are right up my alley.  I love - LOVE - the Delightful Day stamp set, those little birdies just are too cute and I love the mix of solid and open images.  And thought bubbles!!!  Perfect!  Here is the card I made using both the Delightful Day stamp set and the June Key Ingredients Kit.

I told you these little birdies were the cutest!  I decided to paper piece them instead of color them, so I stamped them once on the yellow patterned background, and then again on the blue and pink papers from the Hello Summer 6x6 paper pack from Echo Park (which is included in the June KI).  I cut out the blue and pink birds and then glued them to the yellow circle.  After that, I added some green grass, which I cut out using the Grass Border Die.  The layout here is MOJO244.

I stamped the horizontal thought bubble in Memento Tangelo Ink, added the Memento Tuxedo Black sentiment, and then trimmed around the edges of the image and popped it up on Foam Tape.  I added a little yellow button from the kit as well. 

I also used some of the clear Goosebumps from the kit to add a little (or a lot of) sparkle.  Love these!

Taylor has lots more to show you at her blog along with all of the details on how you can get your hands on Delightful Day, which is an exclusive stamp set only available to Key Ingredients subscribers.  You don't want to miss this!
