The papers are inked overall to modify their color and give them the distressed look. The dark red paper is also embossed. The primary flowers are silk, torn from a floral piece. The Heart and bone colored rose just below the Thank you are buttons I found recently. The lacy flowers are made by sewing a basting stitch onto a flat poly narrow lace piece, drawn up and formed like I like them. The spikes were also inked to make them the color I wanted. I distressed the edges of the main background paper using my sewing machine with no thread.
