Happy Smiles

Good Morning.  I am sending all of you a 'BE HAPPY' message today.  I think the shades of sunny yellow and gold make for a happy card.  I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast; use stripes on your card.  I thought this cute little guy with his striped belly worked great for that.
The background was my starting point.  It was a scrap of cardstock that I used when I cleaned off my stencil.  I hate to waste the ink and often I am left with interesting inky designs that I can use for future backgrounds.  I did add some white paint splatters as well.
This cute little guy is a freebie on the Paper Smooches site.  I printed it off, cut him out and coloured with Copic markers.  I added the sentiment then pop dotted the bee over that.
 Also adding my card to these challenges: 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a appreciated!
Supplies:  stamps- Paper Smooches, Penny Black/ Digi- Paper Smooches/ Distress ink/ stencil/ white paint/ Memento bl ink/ pop dots/
