I chose to turn the sketch on it's side then flip the focal image to the top rather than the bottom... clear as mud? lol! I used this pattern from the beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP (a Sale-a-Bration bonus product) and accented it with a strip of Summer Starfruit cardstock embossed with the new Arrows embossing folder which echoes a similar design.
"You can never have too much happy" is from the expressive sentiment stamp set Yippee Skippee; it was stamped with VersaMark then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I layered this Crisp Cantaloupe Starburst die-cut over a Whisper White Starburst die-cut of the exact same size and rotated it just a tiny bit so only the white points could be seen. Next I die-cut a third same-size Starburst from Calypso Coral, cut it in equal fourths and attached them to the back, extending them from the edge a bit to accent the sentiment. A Silver Button tied with Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine accents the bottom. Basic Pearls colored with a silver Sharpie marker are the final accent.
