Thanks

I love wreaths & that may be part of why I was drawn to Kimberly's beautiful cardReally, it's like a big wreath going off the edges of the card.    
I couldn't wait to try my own version.  First I colored 2 strips of vellum--one with COPIC R35 & the other with G02.  Then I die cut 2 of the blooms from SSS Floral Shapes (dies that match SSS Spring Flowers) from the non-colored side of the Coral vellum & 2 of the leaf clusters from the green. 
Delicata Silvery Shimmer was used for the stamping.  I attached the die cuts on a SSS Fog panel & trimmed off the excess.  SSS Painted Thanks was die cut from the fog cardstock & heat embossed several times with silver embossing powder.  I clear embossed another die cut to use as the shadow.  Wish I'd taken a picture before splattering with Distress Stain Burnished Silver--made a huge difference, at least to my eye. 
Added some silver sequins for a finishing touch.  I'm entering SSS Flickr Challenge #92 & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: Also entering SSS National Craft Day.

  6. The vellum leaves and flowers are so delicate and pretty and do look like a wreath! Your color choice remind me of the cover of the book "Pride and Prejudice" which is the first challenge over at the Library Challenge. Check it out! http://thelibrarycraftchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/02/challenge-one-pride-and-prejudice.html
