To start, I stamped the Vintage Oval Frame stamp twice (once on Ivory cardstock and then again on some Dream Street Papers dp), then cut the ivory at the inner frame line and the aqua dp on the outer frame line and layered, then trimmed a small mat for it. The ivory piece is embossed with the Tim Holtz Regal Flourishes texture fade and I softly sponged with some Vintage Photo distress ink. The flowery paper is the back side of the same Dream Street aqua paper, and I stitched a border and added an espresso mat. I used a QuicKutz corner flourish die that caught my eye in Laurie's stamp room, then added a bit of ribbon on the diagonal.
The sentiment is from the Joy for the Journey set and is punched out with a 1-3/8" circle punch, then matted with an espresso nestabilities die cut, then layered over the vintage oval frame. i finished off with some aqua bling and two gorgeous little paper roses from Recollections.
