I love this challenge. I think I actually managed to use every single one of my favourite things!
I decided on earth tones (favourite colours) and used Kraft cs (one of my faves). I used SU's frame ef (I love it) and for the panel inside I used my favourite technique:
I stamped the panel with SU's Old Lace background stamp using Versamark, then I gold embossed it. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a Sissix ef. Then I sponged over the whole thing with Walnut distress ink. The gold embossing resisted the ink and the ink didn't go into the depressed part of the embossing, so I wound up with a kraft, walnut and gold background.
This Cheery Lynn die is definitely my fave....I think it's gorgeous, plus I think it might be the most versatile embellishment I've ever used. I topped that with my beloved green ribbon and flowers made with my fabulous new Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.

I love everything about this...One of my most favorite colors, delicious rolled flowers and one of the best dies out there (Cheery Lynn)! Pretty sponging and embossing to top it off. A winner for sure....
