Another Reason to Smile

Greetings Stampers! Today's card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. Are you a pin-a-holic like me? It's quite addicting. In case you are interested, you can visit my Pinterest boards by clicking here. I loved the color scheme and faux stitching on the inspiration card, and thought it would be a perfect layout to showcase the new Reason to Smile Stamp Set, which is a special Stampin' Up promotion for the month of July only. Scroll down for more details.

I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to create a symmetrical line of piercings on the Pool Party Card Stock. Then, I connected the dots with a White Gel Pen. The edge of the card stock was distressed a little using a bone folder. The pretty crystal is a Vintage Faceted Designer Button which was tied off with a little piece of White Baker's Twine and attached with a Glue Dot.
