Sending Smiles

I love playing with my Hero Arts stamps but I also love Amber Ink's iPaper and The Twinery baker's twine. This card features all of these crafty desserts! Just like this card from two days ago, I created a background using the dandelion (starburst) from Sending Smiles Messages. This version matched Amber Ink's Bubble Fizz-Yellow iPaper so perfectly that I stamped the outline Friendly Flags on it. I cut them out and adhered them to the card base with dimensionals. I finished by adding baker's twine along the top of the flags and tying two bows on the ends.
