Paper Doily Sizzlit

Reason to Smile!

 This card was created using the July promotion set Reason to Smile. It is a case of a fellow demo, Sandi McIver, I love how she used the stamps in the set to create the background on the bottom of the card. The card recipe is:

Paper: Baha Breeze(111352), Old Olive(100702)
Ink: Baha Breeze(126960) Old Olive(126953)
Stamp Sets: Reason to Smile, Perfectly Penned(w-122890 or c-122892)

Accessories: White Gel Pen(105021), White Organza Ribbon(114319), Blender Pen(102845), Big Shot(113439), Fancy Fan embossing folder(127751), Finishing Touches Edglit(127010), Labels Collection Framelits(125598)

I used a blender pen to color the line image. The picture doesn't show it well but I didn't let the gel pen dry enough and managed to smudge the white in places so please learn from my mistakes.

The weather is HOT here this week, for me anyway, I don't do heat and humidity well. I hope you are enjoying your week, where ever you are!

Thanks for stopping by!
