Frosty Wreath

A Christmas card in contemporary colours today, using my Spellbinders Build a Wreath die, which I haven't used for quite a while.  I decided against cutting it in traditional green and went for frosty white with plenty of shimmer instead.
 As mentioned before, the wreath and bow were cut with Spellbinders Build a Wreath dies; I used off white pearl card for the wreath and, once assembled, gave it a spritz of iridescent Spray and Sparkle before adding the bow and decorating it with some Star Dust Stickles to make it look like fancy edged wired ribbon.  I then embellished the wreath with an assortment of gems and pearls.
I used white Stardust card for the background, embossing it with an Embossalicious Christmas embossing folder, instead of using pattered paper.  The large pink circle was cut with a Grand Spellbinder die and the corner elements were cut with a Marianne die.
The final touch was to add a border of Liquid Pearls to the pink edges and to the fancy circle.
