My inspiration was the filigree type stamp (another huge stamp) and yes it left me few options because of the size. I selected shimmery DCWV papers from their Luxury Collection and Metallic Collection and after stamping on several plain papers settled on this shimmery print. The serendipity came in with the background – I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and
hated really didn’t like how it looked. I wondered how the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder would look and embossed it on the same piece of paper since I was going to throw it away. Well, I loved how overlaying both embossing folders on one piece of paper looked, and used it in the card. The serendipity fairy appeared again when I was stamping and positioning the word "Amen". I was a tad short on the ribbon and in my zeal pulled it up pretty tight to tie the knots, which created an arch in the paper. I liked it and decided to keep it.
