I distressed the edges here quite a bit in keeping with the background and feel of the paper. I added brown and black inks together to tone down the white core-edges. I also sanded the large Bo Bunny Chipboard letters and added the brown and black ink to distress them and make them less shiny. The flourish is Bo Bunny too and was originally black so I sanded it down and added the black/brown ink. I also tied the black twine around the lower title area to create focus on the title and anchor the page.
The large circle and the two smaller ones are from Harmonie and are inked and sewn to the page! It's quite easy to get your needle to go over those larger elements on the machine. I had tea dyed a Fancy Pants doilie and placed it underneath too.
A final note, is the fussy cut white flower (a poinsettia!) added the acrylic bud and a gorgeous jewelled pin.
I am in love with the photo and I hope the layout does it justice. Carey really liked it and truth be told, that's why I did it.
Hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations whatever they may be,
