Mosaic Border - Spellblogger post for Spellbinders

I'm here today with another Spellblogging post for Spellbinders
 This time it's another card, using the beautiful ornament dies - and some waste from another project!
 A couple of weeks ago I made this box for the weekly Daring Cardmakers Challenge, and used Stacey Caron's French Flair Card Creator die set to make a decorative panel for the top.  I saved the 'waste' from this project because I felt sure I could make use of it!

I used all those little pieces of card that would otherwise have gone in the bin to created a mosaic border and I love how it turned out to be the perfect background for the beautiful ornament, and I think I'll be saving those waste pieces more often from now!

White card blank
Patterned Centura card for the mosaic and the filigree bauble
Red Glitter card for the backing circle and the sentiment
Gold twine

All the info for the box and the Spellbinders dies I used to decorate it, including the poinsettia and the gorgeous label piece in the centre can be found HERE, but here are the Spellbinders die sets used on this card
