Start with a sticker... (I know, I usually end with a sticker!)
In this case I rally wanted to use this cute bear so everything else was based on this. First came the yellow-gold plaid scrapbook paper to match the teacup. Then the background cardstock to match his kerchief. I found that I had the sticky-backed braid in the right colors and a lovely pair of roses from the same sticker sheet as the bear. They are raised on foam to ride over the braid. The text is from a printed scrapbook paper but it was a light pink background. So I used Whisper inkpad direct to paper to match it to the cardstock.
