I could spend hours at the Pier 1 site, and in the store, for that matter! The minute I saw the Beaded Blue and Gold garland I knew that was the one for me! The Penny Black wreath was stamped with versamark, embossed with a mixture of clear emb powder and gold pearl ex powder, then framed with gold metallic cardstock. I added some Kaisercraft rhinestones in aqua, split pea and topaz and placed the panel on a white card base. The Papertrey sentiment was embossed with the same formula as the wreath. Here's my inspiration. http://www.pier1.com/Beaded-Garland-...eweled_spendor

Wow this is gorgeous! I think I'm going to have to look at that Penny Black stamp for purchase. Time to get in holiday card mode! Very creative you mixed pearl ex with ep. Great idea! I have so much pearl ex and seems like I rarely use it. You have inspired me.
