This I matt and layered on burgandy mirror card. I die cut the tree from brown pearl sheen card, adding the cog and heart elements from the clip art to represent leaves and carved heart, along with gems and pearls too. The image, I printed, then coloured in these wonderful shades of browns and burgandy to complement the golds of the collection, finally carefully cutting out and placing as shown. To decorate, I added the leaves and  flower with clip art cog and brad in the centre. To finish off, I added the sentiment topper, made up from a layer of mirror card, clip art large cog and sentiment.
