Here's your design with finishing effects, along with some closeups. As you can see, all the gold elements have been metallized, with the central "C" given a slight brushed effect. Drop shadows have been added where appropriate. We've shortened the thistle stem on the bottom buckle.The central thistle has been given a 3D effect, and the thistle fringe has been given a painted look.
The previous mockup is posted at the bottom.
