Stamp Simply x 4

I can't believe it's my last week guest designing with Sharon's Stamp Simply team. It's been such a blast, with some really great challenges. Thank you Sharon! And today's challenge may be my favorite of them all. Create a card that is SUPER easy to mass produce. And here's my happy, cheery thank you card (times four).
No coloring, no cutting out little pieces, just punching, gluing, and little bit of stamping. And since the accesories are minimal, it's a pretty cheap card to mass produce too.
If you'd like to recreate this card (maybe using your choice of papers to suit your theme), here are my measurements. I cut everything out first, then quickly assembled.

Blue polka dots: 1.75 x 4.25 inches (x2)
Solid blue: 2 x 4.25 inches
orange strips: .25 x 4.25 inches (x2)
striped strips: 3/8 x 4.25 inches (x2)

This is all layered on a solid white base. I also cut/punched all of my butterflies, flowers and circles at one time as well.

What's In It?
Stamps: Circle Sentiments (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: white, celery (SU), sea salt (Bazzill), Ooh La La (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: turquoise (SU)
Other: classic butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), corner rounder, circle nestie, Cuttlebug flower die, Prima flowers, gold Stickles, dimensional adhesive
