Layers of Color - Merci Bouquet

This set by Layers of Color is so pretty.  It's called Merci Bouquet. 

I used Core'dinations cardstock.  It was brown on the outside and pink on the inside.  I ran it through the cuttlebug using one of their embossing folders and then lightly sanded.  I like that aged effect you get with this.   I rubbed on pink acrylic paint to distress it more.   I used a background stamp on the Spellbinders die cut and distressed it with brown ink and a stipple brush. 

I just love the stick pin I used on this one.  It's by Jenni Bowlin.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
