The base is an oak tag, and I embossed some Soft Suede card with a TH Texture Fade in wood grain. Then I got out the liquid Picket Fence Distress Stain, and gave it a bit of a white wash. It was cut in strips and added to the background. The rest is gems, pearls, flowers, leaf punches, and a dab of Stickles. My sentiment is from the kit also and in popped on graduating circles. I wanted to keep this on hand for a graduation, promotion, weight loss, etc.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
