Warmest Blessings

The ReRun challenge at Winnie & Walter this month is using their Renee's Leaves set, and I was wowed by all of the samples presented to us!  I'll be making multiple entries for this one, but for my first, I was influenced by Heather's card.  I'm a paper-aholic, so I was delighted to see her card that incorporated a pattern paper as a main ingredient!

W&W Rerun #14

supplies: white and shimmery copper cardstock, vellum, pattern paper from Jen Hadfield's Warm & Cozy 6" pad, Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and the Blessings clear stamp set, copper embossing powder, Paper Smooches Dots & Dashes dot die to make stitching holes, gold thread, DieNamics Blueprints 20 and Simon Stitched Rectangles dies, sequins

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:
