Smile filled wonderful world

I guess I was in a good mood this weekend and decided to do a cheery card  in a bright color palette.I have lots of different things, themes and colors in my stash and decided to do something different.  I used 100 Proof Press stamps for this project. They have a huge selection and I always find a new one that I must have. LOL. So this time, I used the pretty tree branch as my starting point for this card.

I stamped the branch on both sides of a piece of joss paper and layered it on some printed paper for stability.The paper lantern stickers were strung across the branches next. A Chinese red New Year money envelope detailed with red and blue Stickles adds some pop. Two teenie tiny birds and my sentiment "Discover my smile filled wonderful world' completed my colorful card.

Hope your world is filled with smiles,
yours truly , gerri
