Oh I am in love with this card!

I wanted to use my wonderful Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, but with a different focal point than the flowers that I often use.

Choose Happiness is a stamp set that’s not often used in my crafting, but I really ought to break it out more.  Doesn’t that Label Bracket punched phrase look just perfect?

In Smoky Slate ink over a twist of Silver Cording Trim, and backdropped with Soft Sky, Smoky Slate and Rose Red stamping, I love it.

I fortunately just placed it first before sticking it down, and knew at once that I needed to do a little sponging, so around the edge of the card it’s softened down, and the same on the punch out.

Finally I scattered half a dozen of the smallest Basics Rhinestones and knew that was the point to stop.

For me, it’s a definite winner, but I hope you like it too.
