So Excited for My Sparkly Creation!!!

A few weeks ago I bought this fabulous big pack of paper, My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas Glitter Pad. So sparkly! Then this past weekend I was fortunate enough to go to A Cherry On Top's Warehouse Sale. On the way to the register I saw this fabu pack of chipboard shapes! There are 12 in the pack, they're 9" x 7", and they're $4.99 a pack!!! I knew they were meant for each other!
Once I picked the paper for my first plaque I adhered it with Mod Podge. I cut a coordinating piece for the top and punched a decorative edge. After attaching that I sanded the edges and painted the edges with brown acrylic paint.
I was ready to start decorating it! The fun part!
The circle is punched with a 1 3/4" punch. The stamp is from Unity. The die cut behind that is from PTI. These flowers are French White Fairytale Roses from Prima. I sprayed the dickens out of them with Glimmer Mist! Those brads in the middle of the snowflakes are Basic Grey plain ol' brads. I applied Matte Accents to the top and dipped them in Diamond Dust Glitter for a fun sparkly effect!
After finishing the decorating I punched holes in the top with My Crop a Dile and slipped this gorgeous SU Espresso Satin Ribbon through. I didn't want plain knots, so I put a few stitches in, then wrapped a separate piece around that and stitched that piece.
So there it is. One of my favorite projects so far!
Thanks for looking! I'm so happy when I get company in here ;)
