Here is my take on this super fun sketch!!
"Grateful Card" using Graphic 45 French Country paper collection, following the sketch design with picking out a couple of amazing Die~Namites Dies. To use the die not as a whole die form but to take the die cut piece and cut it apart to tuck in here and there on my this technique.
Here are the two Die~Namites Dies I used,

Dotted Flowers

Flowering Branch
I grabbed a few of my favorite mists, paints and Petaloo flowers!
To adorn my "grateful" card!!
I picked out my colors from the Graphic 45 paper collection to
color the flowers...great way to get the right match
of color for your card or project.
Here is a couple of close ups 
showing the two die cuts pieces cut apart to use
as fillers for your card or project.
I even fussy cut out the roaster out of the paper collection 
and tucked him in with the cute.
Thanks for stopping by,
