Happiness Fairy

This sentiment from Unity makes me smile! It's called Happy Dust and I paired it with the gorgeous fairy from Unity's November 2014 What Lies Within Us KOTM. It's going to make a wonderful birthday card for my bestie!
I used my Twinkling H20's to color her so the whole image sparkles. I also used a Heidi Swapp stencil and some gold ink for the stars.

I've also got another little something to share today. Do you decorate your envelopes too? I used to and then just got so busy that I'd find myself grabbing an envelope at the last minute and it was pretty boring.  I feel that the envelope should be just as happy of a treat when you open your mailbox, like getting an instant smile before you even open the contents! I've made it my goal to start decorating all of my outgoing mail to make it truly HAPPY MAIL!

Here is the envelope I decorated for this card using my Unity Stamps.

I used the Melody Ross Domestic Bliss set from Unity for the envelope as well as a couple of stamps from Unity's kit of the months and some washi tape. The awesome, amazing, hilarious stamps came with one of my Studio Calico project life kits.

What do you think, do you like the happy mail/mail art idea? Would it bring a smile to your face to open your box and see this?

It's Friday and Friends With Flair today at Unity so be sure to check out all of the amazing creations made by my Unity friends this week, always inspiring!!!
Thanks for visiting!

This fairy is beautiful! Thank you also for reminding me to pull out my Twinkling H20's. I always forget about them.

Your bestie is going to LOVE her card. Fantastic colors and boy do I love that sentiment. I try to decorate my envelopes even if it's just a little piece of coordinating paper or washi tape. Hope you have a great weekend!

Such a pretty card. Love that stamp. Great job on your envelope too.

What a funny card. You did an awesome job with the colors.

Love the way you are doing your envelopes. I was trying to coordinate envelopes with my cards for a while, but I was too OCD. If it didn't match exactly, it upset me. lol... Maybe I should just do a hodgepodge of happiness on the outside like you did. Looks terrific!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

This is a wonderful card for your bestie! I love all the "extras" on the envelope. Sometimes, I'll use a coordinating stamp on the envelope, but after seeing yours, I'm going to use more stuff. You have inspired me. Oh, by the way, I would love to receive something like this in the mail.

Fab card and I think it's a great idea to decorate the envelope - I just never seem to have the time to!
