Joy and Happiness

I bought a new paper pad the other day, Vintage Winter by Maja Design.  I love the Scandinavian colours in there -  48 sheets of double-sided shabby deliciousness in cardweight paper.  So I have now broken into it.

I have used a heavyweight card for my base and chomped the corners off with my Zutter Chomper, and then rounded all the other corners as well.   My image is an Stampinton, and I have had it a very long time.  I tried out several reds before I got the one I felt toned in with the DP, and then finally stamped it on patterned paper, which is actually the reverse of the paper in the long panel.  The flowers are Prima North Country, and lace is from stash. 

I am entering this into the following challenges:
