I have a card today for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Drafts Challenge!

I only used one stamp for this card, the word "smile" from Giddy Bugs.  I made the background by repeatedly stamping the word smile using Hero Arts Mint Julep ink.  I cut the top with the scalloped curve die from Simon Says Stamp, and then added a piece of vellum over top because I wanted to mute the background a bit.  All of the patterned papers are from Simon Says Stamps August card kit.  I thought the camera paper worked perfectly with the "smile" sentiment.  Just a tidbit, this is the third version of this card because I was really having trouble coming up with something I loved.  Don't you hate when that happens?  I'll admit though I'm probably my own worst critic ;)

Thanks for stopping by today!
