More Reason to Smile

We are in a heat wave, or at least the second day of one.  Maybe I'm too optimistic and I'm smiling too.  

As promised here is another card done with the Reason to Smile stamp set.  Again, I have used the personalized designer paper that I used in my last project.   

Stamps: A Reason to Smile (July Promotion), Layered Labels (c – 127072, w – 127750, p. 74, 2012-2013 AC)
Paper: Natural White, Pool Party, More Mustard, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Midnight Muse, More Mustard, So Saffron
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accent Labels, Pool Party Ribbon , Large Oval Punch

This is a clean and simple card but could be taken to WOW by texturizing the More Mustard card stock, adding a bow with the ribbon and using more embellishments like our jewels (pearls or rhinestones), or the new Dahlia embellishments or even one of the new Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons.
