So Many Smiles

I have fallen for a new colour! My stamping buddy  lent me her Stampin' Up's  Coastal Cabana ink Pad and a sheet of the card stock to play with. Play I did and the above card is what I came up with. I love this colour and will be placing my order for it on the next go around. I paired it with a piece of Bo-Bunny's Back to Basic designer paper , a matching ribbon and flower ( from my stash), added a Whimsy flourish. a sentiment and I was done. Hopefully it is not too bare. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's 'Petite Pairs' stamp set.
