For this project I used one of the Sweet pea stamps by Caron Vinson.  I coloured with copics and spica pens.  I used a silver metalic pen to create the border around the image and distressed the background with several liquid chalks.  I then spray white and gold smooch spritz ink.

I used some left over scraps for the backing mat and some silver mirri cardstock.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut several borders and make a frame around the image.  I added ribbon to complete the frame.

I embellished with a petaloo flower, bow, and some paper flowers from Wildorchid.  I added a gem embellishment to the ribbon.
