Soiree Snowflake Mosaic Background - Challenge 196 LNS

The challenge this week is to create a project using a mosaic background.
Here is my card:
Technique:  To create the mosaic background, I started with a 5 1/4 by 2" piece of sticky page and removed the pink cover to reveal the sticky surface.  Then I cut up 2 pieces of  1 3/4 by 4" Candlelight Designer paper basically into triangle shapes and applied them randomly on the edges and middle of this sticky strip, leaving spaces in between the pieces.  After they were all applied, I trimmed the excess paper off and used the little pieces to fill in some spots than needed filling.
The next step involved gold embossing powder, which I sprinkled over the top of this strip and heat embossed it.
The back of the sticky page was then removed revealing the 2nd sticky surface, which was attached to a Very Vanilla layer embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty folder

Image: A snowflake was gold embossed on Very Vanilla cardstock, and a vintage button and large pearl was applied to the center.  Smaller pearls were attached around the snowflake. It was matted with Real Red, the edges of which were embossed with gold embossing powder.
I did the same with the sentiment.

Ribbon: SU does not have gold ribbon, so I made my own by applying Versa Mark followed by gold embossing powder to White Taffeta ribbon and heat setting.

Stamps: Snowflake Soiree
Ink: Versa Mark
Papers:  Real Red, Very Vanilla, Candlelight Christmas DSP
Accessories: Petals-a-Plenty folder, 3/8" white taffeta ribbon, gold embossing powder, Vintage button, Large Pearl, Smaller pearls, dimensionals, glue dot.
