Adventures in Happiness...

I had a play last weekend with my stamps from the Adventures in Happiness Unity set available from Make the day special.
The sentiment stamps that are part of the set are so lovely and make a great card on their own without the need to combine them with an image.

I love this sentiment and it's serene theme reminded me of these papers from Cosmo Cricket. I love papers with Clouds and these are no exception, I love the vintagey aged feel to them. I stamped the sentiment straight on to the backing paper and cut it out with my Nestabilities and matted it on to some coordinating paper. I matted the cloud paper on to the same paper and sewed around the edges. I punched some holes and set some eyelets and threaded the sentiment tag with organza ribbon which I wrapped around the card front before affixing to the card blank.
I added a butterfly made from a punched layer and a butterfly embellishment from Mei flowers and some pearls as a finishing touch.
I hope you have a lovely Friday.
