So today I just wanted to do something relaxing and on the simpler side. What I came up with is the card you see above. Although the Delightful Decorations stamp is beautiful in and of itself, I had to add some BLING. The dsp and silver twine are both scraps from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push t…
