CHOOSE HAPPINESS

This is a lovely retired Stampin Up set I've just found and wanted to have a play with it.  I've used a piece of Kaisercraft Paper from their Enchanted paper pad with is very pretty - bronzed with sponged edges.  


I cut a similar piece with a stitched framelit and stamped the bird from the set and fussy cut it out.  I added a small brad and some bronze thread behind the tag.  I added some lovely leaf cut outs that I was gifted from an Envelope Craft Swap we did on my Facebook Group The Joy of Sets.

The designed is stamped across the bottom with Early Espresso from SU . The sentiment is from another retired set Lotus Blossom.  I added a bronze embellishment and added it to some Crumb Cake card stock.



I'm adding this into the following challenges:
