I used 2 12x12 sheets & a sheet of 8x8 of the Cottage Life Garden Seeds, to do some layers, ripping, fussy cutting & for matting of the photo. This image also shows another flower cluster, I fussy cut the flowers over the doily, then for the cluster I used Blossom Blooms-Linen, Garden Seeds-Poppy & pieces from the layered embellishments....
I love the rooster in this Collection, this one is from the layered embellishments...
I matted the Photo with the 8x8 sheet, that I distressed the edges, then did some hand stitching. I then glued on the circle piece that is in the Cottage Blooms package, & did some flower clusters...
I did some punch work, hand stitching & glued the piece of lace that is in the Cottage Blooms package under that layer...I also ripped the top right corner, glued some burlap trim into the layer & made a flower cluster...

I did not do much with the chipboard, I just inked the edges with Versa Mark ink pad-pinecone....Here are a few more close ups....
