Flower Heart Wreath

Hope you are all well and keeping warm.  I have a fairly steady week this week - caught up on HW and even sorted the carrier bag that was half of odd socks - half have been matched up and lord only knows where the rest are - l think my washer eats them.Had a little drive over to LOTV this afternoon for some of the new vintage boys stamps and a little die and a few flowers jumped into my basket too. :)
Anyhow... my niece asked me to make an engagement card for her friend and wanted something elegant on the same lines as my white valentines card, l bought this gorgeous flower wreath for Chloe's at the Harrogate papercraft show and was saving it for something special.
I stamped it and embossed with WOW silver powder on white card then again on a good quality vellum and cut out the flowers only then added it onto and added gems to the centres. I have to say it looks stunning IRL and the photo does not do it any justice. I have decorated the inside but forgot to photo that (numpty) I made a box to match too.

Stamp - Chloe's Flower Heart Wreath
WOW embossing powder
Vellum from The Stamp Man
Creative Expressions Mask (embossing)
Gems, ribbon & charm.

Matching Box

Tag - Spellbinders
Heart Dies Memory Box
Mask as above
