You Make Me 'SMILE'

What made me 'smile' when I saw what this week's word was at

Take a close look and you can see the floral stencil I used above
 really does have a smile in it. Perfect for this week's challenge!

I bought it recently at a craft show and was playing
with some 'new to me' Little Birdie Embossing/Texture Paste
where you use it in the usual way but after you take the stencil off
you heat emboss it and you get this lovely fluffy effect.
This is the second time I have used it and this time I added
some purple (yes Judy) pigment powder.
And purple is so hard to photograph!
My card was so easy and quick 
(since I had already made my focal point)
by simply adhering designer paper to my card base and
attaching my image. 
My sentiment is from STAMPlorations Smile
Added a few gems and corner rounded one end
and my card is done.

I have some of that paste from another company, Ina, and isn't it fun to see it puff up? Adding powder to it really worked to make that beautiful purple.
