Ivory and Gold
I had a snippet of vellum that was just the perfect size for the wreath die. The rest of the card is just bits and pieces of different ivory and white card stock. I created a chance for additional layers when I tried embossing the sentiment on the linen texture layer. I don't have detail gold EP, and the gold EP ended up as an unreadable blob rather than a nice sentiment, so I decided to stamp it in gold ink on a little slip and layer it right below the ribbon.
There are gold stickles on the wreath in place of berries. Each layer is also edged with gold ink.
I'm entering the card in these challenges:
