The whole idea started off with a piece of embossed vellum I've had sitting on my desk for a while, ever since I embossed it just to see what would happen.
The gold wreath ring is cut using two scallop circles from the layering die set. The stars are cut using star elements from a couple of other thinlet sets: the Circle flip card and the Mini Treat Bags and using a mix of gold and silver foil and silver glimmer paper.
I've added in a few stars and circles from Metallic Shapes.
I also did something I seldom do - I saved the sentiment for the inside.
Update: Delighted to be picked as A Cut Above at the Paper Players!
