This card was born of the combination of the MFT Sketch #298 and using paper scraps from an old DSP pack called Snow Festival. I've always loved the colours and patterns of those papers, but will say they are hard to pair together because every single page is very busy. I have to make sure to keep it easy with the paper to avoid design overload. Here, I decided to use the ornement pattern for the background and it inspired me to pull out the Something for Christmas single stamp because of the hanging ornements. I used Stampin' Write Markers to ink it in various colours.
My first idea based on the sketch was to use an ornement die-cut for the circle shape on the sketch but then when looking for something to add at the bottom of my main panel that wasn't too distracting (read: that didn't have patterns), I found a piece of Cherry Cobbler scallop tulle that was perfect, and figured that if I tied it in a pretty bow, the bow would fit in lieu of the circle on the sketch.
A few pearls and sequins were added as well, and a matching envelope was made with the Envelope Punch Board.
