My Mind's Eye... Be Happy

The weather has turned
quite cool after having temperatures in the high 70's and 80's last week. It's beautiful and sunny though, but too breezy for me to do any outside work. I would just as well be in my craft room making cards and looking out the window.
I pulled out the My Mind's
Eye Follow Your Heart "Be Happy" 6x6 Designer Paper Pad and all the bits and bobs that go with that collection... some mighty pretty stuff! This is what I made...

I did some machine 
stitching, fussy cutting, and distressing with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

All the flowers are
from I Am Roses except for the two grey ones, which are Recollections. They, as well as the paper doily, were all were sprayed with Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I adhered Queen & Co pearls to the crocheted flowers and to the doily.

The tag was cut by hand,
using a manila tag as a template. I added a wide silver eyelet and pulled on a piece of tulle from the Glitz Beautiful Dreamer Trim pack that came in the Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary Kit from Pixie Dust Paperie. It's tied with a May Arts Pink Burlap String bow, and topped with a half pearl. The bird in the cage is a MME "Be Happy" Layered Sticker.
Hope you have a great
week and can get out and enjoy this lovely Spring season!

Thanks for stopping by today!
