Pretty Pines Wreath ~ CCMC432

It's Thursday and that means a new challenge at Create and Connie and Mary!  This week we have a handsome color trio for you.  
I chose to use the Mint as a wreath and built my own out of Pretty Pines die cuts.  I added in some copper die cut accents from the same set.  Copper is pretty hard to photograph.  It looks kinda gold, but it's really striking in real life.  

For the background, I applied Night of Navy ink directly to my Sparkle embossing folder, carefully laid the navy cardstock on top and ran it through the big shot.  I like the effect it gave.  I gives much more depth to the embossed piece.  
I fussy cut the sentiment banner and adhered it with dimensionals to compensate for the bulk of the wreath.  Lastly, I added little bunches of pearls to the wreath and scattered pearls around the background.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us!  
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
