A Florence Friendship Card for Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to the April Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST.  If you are coming from Crystal's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.)  Have fun being inspired!

My card features Close to My Heart Florence paper and A Bunch of Love stamp.  Recently I came upon a tip for creating dimension using craft foam (instead of pieces of foam tape) demonstrated by Jennifer Mcguire which was so easy to do using the A Bunch of Love Thin Cut Die.  The stripes and banners are from the top strip of the Florence paper. I love how they create a colorful accent to the card.
