Autumn Tones Tattered Leaves Card

Good afternoon, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I have made using a couple of prizes I won a little while ago :-) I used Sizzix Bigz tattered leaves die and embossing folders-I embossed the leaves with the embossing folder it matches with to give the leaves the proper dimension and texture. I then coloured the leaves and embossed panel with distress inks and gilding wax to give a gold sheen. I used a sentiment from Sheena Douglass stamps and die cut with Sizzix nesting dies. I then coloured this with ink and gilding wax. I placed my design on a pearlescent card blank which I inked at the edges with ink too to tie it all in.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
