For this challenge, I went the Shabby Chic route. This is a really fun style to work with.
I started by inking an embossing folder with yellow & orange inks (the ombre effect looks so much better in person!) and added clear & glitter embossing powders to give it texture.
The chipboard flowers have been in my stash for years; I inked them with 3 purple inks, embossed them with the same folder I used for the background, and added 3 purple embossing powders.
The green buttons are from A Muse Studio; I won them at Chris's great Amusing Challenge. I tied some twine onto them before gluing them to the flowers.
For the sentiment piece, I used a Graphic45 die/stamp set that I recently bought from Monica via the Craft Room Destash Facebook group. I heat-embossed the sentiment in burgundy onto vellum. The lovely seam binding is from Paper Sweeties.
