"I knew that I had married a handsome young man, but little did I know what a striking portrait you and your parents made when you were just three months old!"
(I direct to paper edge distressed with ink, I crumped and added Distress Ink and sprayed with water, I sprayed with Color Wash, I ironned, I moist swiped a photo to wipe away the freshly printed ink, I chizzeled an inner border into a photo, I used Distress Ink to colorize the same photo, and I used Basic Grey with some built in distressing! I did tear my burgundy paper while ironning, but I hid the rips under the photo hehe... It didn't seem to need *that* much distress!)
I double distressed the photograph by first swiping the edges with a dampened felt square, then using my Chizzel-It to engrave an inner border beyond that. I also tinted my Father-In-Law's tie and everyone's lips with Ranger's Cut n Dry Nibs using Aged Mahogany and Tea Dye Distress Inks and edged the photograph with Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
I distressed the edges of the background paper with Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The burgundy strips are patterned paper crumped and double distressed with Aged Mahogany and Tea Dye Distress Ink, then sprayed with Raisin Color Wash and ironned flat. The tag is edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Thank you all! :) I know I forgot to mention it with all the distressing to list... but my Father in Law's jacket has a pattern that looks almost exactly like the background paper's pattern! I knew, right away, that I wanted to dig into that particular paper pack, but didn't know why I was so positive until I pulled out this sheet!
