Happy Holiday Pinecone FTTC 196

Flourishes is having a Timeless Tuesday challenge of creating a card or project that makes you happy!  The reason this card made me happy was because I colored up the pinecone before picking some matching paper.  When I found my Father Christmas pad and came across this elegant paper I was so HAPPY that it matched! 

I was experimenting with different color groups of Copics to color this elegance, detailed pinecone image by Flourishes.  This one ended up a little dark without highlights but I chose not to adjust it. 
I put a few drops of glitter glue here and there on the pinecone but the card still looked too plain so I added the pearls in the corners.  Turned out to be a slightly masculine card so I will probably send it to a guy!
