I love the background paper...just picked up a new SEI paperpad. It reminds me of a tropical sunrise. The stamps used were from Michael's $1 bin. The faux button on the bird was built right into the stamp...nice for keeping the card flat. The pink "string" was made by cutting an extremely thin slice of the raspberry cardstock. It worked beautifully. The clouds were cut out of glitter sticky back foam using Papertrey Ink's cloud dies. The border punch is Martha Stewart.
