For the Inspiration Challenge we’re headed across the pond to a lovely site. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

My card today took way longer that I planned on spending but that’s how it goes sometimes. I wanted a twig wreath w/ stars on it but I wanted them to be a silver/gold mix & look a little rustic. The stars were pretty easy. I die cut them then covered them w/ a mix of silver ink on the inside & gold ink around the edges then sprinkled on 2 different embossing powders. One is a gilded gold (mostly clear w/ gold flecks) & the other was a stardust powder (mostly clear w/ little sparkles & a hint of silver). I did the same for the grosgrain ribbon die & bow die cut. On the wreath, I die cut it out of brown then used the same gold ep just in places here & there. Then part that took too long happened because I thought w/ the open area in the center, why not make it a shaker? But the sequins looked too bright & shiny. So I did the embossing again on a piece of ivory & die cut the sequins using a sequin die. Big trouble! Most the embossing flaked right off. So….I had piece sticker paper w/ most of the stickers gone & just the borders left. I peeled it off & stuck my sequins to the sticky side & embossed them again. That worked. I should have thought of that first! Then I put it all together & stamped half of the greeting on the front w/ Versa Clair nocturne & sprinkle the gilded gold powder on it & embossed it. You can see it in the close up but head on, it just looks black.

Here’s the inside.
