Be Happy!

Hello again!

Lots of wonderful Challenges going on over at Papertrey Ink, they are celebrating their 8th Anniversary!

This card was made for their 1st challenge, you could choose from 8 Color / 8 Sketch Challenges.   (scroll to the bottom of the post from that link).

I chose this Sketch:

I hand cut the large tag out of chipboard and covered it in Designer Paper that matches the  background, I love this color combo.  I then stamped several random flowers from the Pretty Petals stamp set, and covered the entire tag with a sheet of Vellum.  I also stamped the circle image onto white card stock and cut that out with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die, to act as my 'button' placed it on the hole of the large tag, topped with a pretty bow.  The 2 small tags were cut using my Cameo for some other project, these are leftovers.  I stamped the Be Happy sentiment on to them, this is a one piece stamp, yet I masked off the words to make it 2 separate words.  Added a little Baker's Twine to tie them on the large tag and then took the liberty to add 2 pretty enamel brads in the lower right corner. 
The inside also has a bit of the Designer Paper to add some interest--this is becoming my signature look I think.  Easy to do and adds quite a bit of loveliness. 
Thanks for coming by.....don't slip on the ice and snow!
