Since I still had this Paper Whimsy collage sheet out; I decided to use another image to make a long overdue thank you card for a friend. 

I started with one of my new Hero Arts background stamps, Classic Fabric Design.  Inked it up with two Ranger distress inkpads - broken china and peeled paint.  Spritzed it with a water mister and stamped on white cardstock.  Added a portion of a paper doily and ribbon, then the beautiful Paper Whimsy image.  The sentiment is from another new Hero Arts clear set, Find Joy, and was stamped with broken china and the edges were distressed with the same inks.  Added a cute little dragonfly from K & Co. and some turquoise gems.  Inked the edges of the background and then layered to a light green card.

I love what you've done with that background, it's really pretty and so effective! The little girl is such a cutie.

You had to get that Hero Arts set, Find Joy, didn't you?!

Pretty card.
