I knew I wanted to back the cut file with the Leaf Love patterned paper
in the collection, but I also wanted to be able to put embellishments on
it. I chose to add an extra layer of vellum in between the cut file and
the paper to soften the image, then fussy cut some of the leaves out of
the same patterned paper (I used the vellum version of it) and stitched
them here and there inside the circle.
I also stitched the top and bottom portions of the circle and the sentiment, to make them stand out more.
