Here are some closeups of detail.....
Shows distressed layers,using some corrugated paper & burlap in my layers. I used TA chalkboard decadence on the wordlet,then inked the edges using a brown ink pad..... 
I used decadence TA on the frame part of the frame,& a dark brown marker for the vine part. On the leaves I used DA forrest acrylic paint, then DA crackle varnish & once the crackle dried,I dry painted on some DA crushed olive acrylic paint....( I dip my brush into the paint, then brush onto a piece of paper,then onto the leaves)...
 The flowers used are from Petaloo & the burlap is prima....
Shows some punch work & hand stitching....
I covered the pot & cups with grandma's old porcelain paper,then applied a coat of clear varnish....

I used the frayed pieces of burlap in my flower cluster....Enjoying the Moment from one of the BS's of the labels...
Here is the inside of the card.....

On this side I used here & now...
A close up of framed diecut & pot & cup....
This is where I used the quote,making it look like a recipe. I love this quote, & with Erlendur getting in his snow mobile accident,& recovering from a brain injury, I realize that I can not go back & wish this did not happen,nor can I wonder what his future will be. I am so lucky that I have both my scrapbooking & gardening, to keep me busy every day,making some thing beautiful!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle
