I started with a taupe card. I cut a 5.25x4.00 piece of the same card stock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder. I wrapped gold metallic ribbon in a cross pattern slightly to the left of centre around the embossed layer. The ribbon is taped to the back. This layer is then adhered to the card. The flower is an ivory hydrangea flower with heavy gold embellishment. I added a set of green leaves. This accent is held in place with a jumbo gold brad over the intersection of the 2 ribbons. The brad has been sanded slightly to remove the super shine it had.
