But, I am eggcited to share my alternative project with you. :-) I love the little banana stamp and wanted to feature it on my card.  You can see that I've created a whole background using the banana stamp and some Daffodil Delight ink. 

The card is a Pool Party Cardstock base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"). The Daffodil Delight layer is 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". And then the Basic White layer that's stamped with bananas is 5 1/4" x 4".  I love all the layers going on here. :-D 

I brought in a few elements from the kit: The Hello sticker, the striped banner, and the little red scalloped strip.  Then, I needed to bring in the Layering Circles dies.  I cut the 4th largest scalloped circle out of Daffodil Delight Cardstock, and the coordinating circle die to cut the Basic White Cardstock.  

I used the masking technique to layer the bananas to look like a small cluster of bananas. This is such a fun technique and really helps you get more out of your stamp sets!
