Paper Smooches CUTE CLUSTER Wise DIe M1D311

For my project, I combined the stamp and die and came up with a unique design.

I started stamping a circle with leaf stamps. I then dry-embossed the Paper Smooches CUTE CLUSTER Wise Die with Wizard Tan Embossing Mat.

If you see the gold, it is because I did some gilding with Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
