I pretty much always love the PTI MIM videos, but the current one by Melissa is at the top of my favorites--for now--LOL! I loved everything about her card including the use of gold & vellum. I don't have large PTI leaves except for Rosie Posie, so decided to make more of a traditional wreath using "Turning a New Leaf." I still intend to use some other products to CASE her card, though. My leaves are stamped in Memento Northern Pine & sponged with Potter's Clay. I dry embossed them with a Cuttlebug ef & sprayed them with my newest Therm-O-Web Glitter Dust--gold--love it! The leaves are mounted to the "wreath" made from Spellbinders circles that have an image from "Guidelines" (picked up from a stamper's on-line sale) gold embossed on it. Foam tape is used for some of the leaves & the piece is then attached to the vellum square with the sentiment from "Lovely Leaves" stamped in Northern Pine. The vellum is attached to an off-white panel which is mounted with foam tape to the card front. A few gold sequins I just picked up for 99 cents are the only embellishment. This is one of my favorite cards--just the look I love, which doesn't always happen--LOL! Wish I was better at capturing cards in photos. I'm also entering the wreath challenge at Inkspirational.
Thanks so much for all your encouragement & sweet comments.
