Gold and Burlap... together at last!

How good does Gold, Vanilla and our new Burlap Ribbon look?  Yes, I did say "Burlap"... even though this is a very American word (we would say "Hessian" here) that is what it's called in our current Holiday catalogue from Stampin'Up Australia.  So to save confusion I will call it that too... otherwise how would you find it if you wished to purchase it?

I cut the ribbon ($13.95) in half lengthways, and then frayed the edges a little.  I have also used some of our Gold Foil ($6.95) and embossed it with the Pretty Print embossing folder ($13.95) though the Big Shot. The main poinsettia is from the Joyful Christmas stamp set (wood - $39.95, clear - $31.95), and the sentiment if from the "Christmas Messages" set (wood - $49.95, clear - $39.95).  I heat embossed both the sentiment and that outline of the flower in gold embossing powder ($8.50), and added a punched circle of Champagne glimmer paper ($8.95) to the flower's centre. The dotty paper is from the "Season of Style" Paper stack ($11.95).  And finally I sponged a little Soft Suede ink ($9.95) over the flower petals.
