Floral embellished Spellbinder Design

I recently have been going crazy using my various Spellbinders dies using only several colors of papers, several dies and just a couple of sticker embellishments.  Here is one of the first ones I did. 

I started by doing a lot of die-cutting.  Using Nestabilities Labels Ten (starting with the next to the largest) I die-cut antique gold paper from The Paper Company. Then using the next die down I cut some metallic white paper (also from The Paper Company). Next I die-cut the two corner designs from the Shapeabilities Pendant Renaissance Hearts set from some more antique gold paper.  Next came one of the Shapeabilities Fancy Tags from pastel green paper as well as two sets of leaves from the Shapeabilities Assorted Leaves set.  The assembly went fast from there.  I started with a metallic pastel orange card from The Paper Cut and ran a 1/2" wide strip of antique gold paper horizontally across the card.  Then came the gold medallion overlaid with the white medallion.  I added the two corner pieces on either end of the gold medallion and embellished each with just a single ruby red faux gem from Stampendous.   The pastel green label came next and was attached at an angle across the white medallion, with one set of leaves on each side.  The final touch was the addition of two glittered vellum daisy stickers from Jolee's Boutique/E. K. Success.
