Just be happy

Yep, that's the quote for the day.  Just be happy.  Not so hard right?  ;-)  It's Monday after all, a new week with lots of new opportunities to make it your day or maybe someone else?
My card is a simple one with another Elizabeth Mae design.  Her little Morgan is turning 4 and she is celebrating with a BOGO offer!  Get on over there and get your free stamp with the purchse of one.  :-) This little cutie is Ballerina Emma and she is on point in her tutu with hair in a bun ready to spin or perhaps do a pirouette?  That makes me smile.  I was never a ballerina.  Also a tapper.  My sister took dance well into high school so I had basic knowledge about it but never felt interested enough to pursue.  Even when I had my precious daughter, I swayed her to tap.  She was not having anything to do dance/tap either way and by the time we were offered an official diagnosis of Asperger's she was already in Occupational Therapy which was several times a week.  Now that I rambled on.  Let me share my card.
Fairly simple I believe.  I used a little MME (Gertie Girly)  with stitched edges minus the thread matted on a white cardbase.  I added a cream tag with some distressed edges using my PTI Vintage Touch system and stamped a House of Three border stamp with the Chamomile ink at the top and wrapped some hemp cord around to make a bow.  Next I punched a blue tag and distressed again with PTI ink then layered on my stamped sentiment (SP & Co.) which is matted on white for a little extra WOW!   A few embellishments for details then my Emma image was added with foam dots.
