Heather started with a new piece of pattern paper, and that's where I started also. She used a bigger piece of vellum than I did, but I felt that covering up this design took away from the vibrant colors, so my vellum panel was added to the bottom third of my card. I stamped and copper-embossed the sentiments, and then was faced with how to attach it. After some thought I decided to stitch it on, but I was too lazy to get out my sewing machine, so I used a die to make stitching holes across the top and bottom and, using some gold thread, I hand-stitched it to my paper, adding a bow in the center of the top stitching. I liked the look of the copper so well, that I went hunting in my stash for some copper cardstock, and ended up trimming it into a little scalloped frame which I overlaid over the card front. To finish I just added some more sparkle with a scattering of sequins.
Here's a closer look to see the gold thread bow:
