A few weeks ago I saw a sketch on Mojo Monday that I had an idea for but my mojo didn't have the time or wanted to do it. It stayed in my mind till I actually made and although this wasn't quite what was in my head its close and I think it turned out well.
The embossing folder is Whimsy from Lifestyle and a placed on a pearl on every dot, good job I got the pearls cheaply from e-bay.
The corners are a Joy die, I don't know if anyone has problems with these painted type dies but I find if I used a bar of soap that I used years ago that has dried out ( I used roll my embossing tool in it to help embossing vellum for parchment craft) over it this seems to work. Not sure what anyone else can used cos it must have taken about five years for it to dry out, glad I didn't chuck it out now.
The poinsettia I think could be Spellbinders which I embossed as well so that is why there isn't much of a curl of the petals. (I also have Marianne Pointsettia dies)
This time I used gold pearls for the centres and the sentiment is LOTV just the ends made into a fishtail using a square punch.
