This is for today's Inspiration Challenge - here's the piece at Singing Cat Studio which inspired me: Heart Brooch
Originally I had in mind a heart shape as this is an engagement card, but forgot I didn't have Heart Nesties, so I went with a circle instead. I embossed the circle and then ran a copper embossing ink pad over it and embossed. Then lightly used clear embossing ink and olive powder sprinkling gold holographic embossing glitter over the top of that. I used the heat gun from underneath so the glitter wouldn't fly! The flower is made from felt with an MFT loopy bloom die and I use a gold heart button in the middle of it. I used a lacy circle Nestie to dry emboss the panel under the copper circle. IRL this really sparkles!

I had to favorite this right away! I don't know what I like most: the focal points' texture, the soft flower, the antique button or brad, the font of the sentiment, the CAS style....oh my this is just my kind of end table and keep it on display for ever card!

I love your loopy flower! I expect the die makes it easier to make a smaller one :D, the one I tried from the tutorial here was huge! And you really captured the metallic shimmery texture of the inspiration piece.
