I ripped two of the corners off the Serendipity paper (from the kit) that I used as the background and inked around the edges. I then glued the Serendipity paper to the striped Life paper from the kit and slid a couple of doily die-cuts (cut from cream coloured cardstock from my stash) under the ripped edges.
On the background I did some random stamping with pink ink using the 49 and Market stamp, Script Squared, from the Elements Add-on.
The frame around the photo was cut with a die out of the Branches paper and layered over a darker copy that I cut from brown cardstock from my stash. I then cut a mat out of the striped Life paper to layer on top and glued the photo on top of that.
The leaves were also made using a die and the Aryia's Garden Delightful paper from the kit.
These are the dies I used:
I then added the embellishments. The white daisies and the buttons were from my stash. All the other embellishments are from the kit and add-ons.
