Free for All Friday!

Hi all and welcome to a Flourishes DT Free for All Friday! It's a time when the design team picks one of the newly released sets and.... creates! Today, I have a fun and super simple creation to share using the Trimmed with Love stamp set.

On to my creation!

Ok... this is confession time. I  literally used bits and pieces from my desk. Yep! I did! I had that beaded circle cut in half sitting on my desk. I have no idea what happened to the other half.  I had that sanded Blossom die shape stuck on my bulletin board. I had that little strip of Fa La La paper on my desk too. I had already colored the Joy to the World with the Fields and Poppy Copic Collections. I was going to make it into a tag but decided against it. So, with all these goodies that matched, I decided to use them all to make a quick and easy 4" square card. I grabbed some green May Arts wrinkled ribbon, some ivory lace trim, some gold cording and then accented my main image with some glitter glue. (See links below for all products used!). I added some stitching and attached my main image with foam tape and... ta da! 

Here's a close up! I will say, if you look at the Trimmed with Love stamp set, you'll see the words A Gift For You in the center of this mistletoe wreath. Well, to put the Joy to the World wording in, I carefully inked my wreath, stamped and then stamped these words in the center instead! 

And that, my friends is it -- a "What's on Your Desk" kind of challenge to myself to use bits and pieces that really didn't have a "home" yet! :-)
