Happy Everything

Greetings! I hope everyone is doing well this last week before Christmas. Here's my take on the Mojo Monday sketch this week.

Designer paper is from Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage collection, and layered with brown cardstock. I stamped some PTI fancy flourishes in spun sugar on the lined dp. I really like how subtle it came out. Sentiment and small tulips are from Victorine Originals. Copic markers used to color the tulips.

Self adhesive pearls from Micheal's reflection line are used on the scallops in the circle and in the bottom two corners on the lined dp. Ribbon is satin and the bow is tied with the Bow Easy.

I did things a bit different when creating this card. Usually I pick my stamps first, then go on a search and destroy mission to find just the right designer paper to go with whatever stamps I chose. This time I picked the designer paper first. So much less stressful and came together quickly too! So, how do you go about things? What do you choose first?

The true voyage of self-discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. -Marcel Proust
