For this layout I wanted something with a dash of purple, so I used this K & Company patterned paper and combined it with brown cardstock that I cut with the Martha Stewart Trellis deep edge punch. I used my Slice to cut the title and a white pen for the faux stitch.
After adhering the journaling, I noticed that I needed some embellishments, so I cut the petals of a Prima "Whispers" yellow flower and colored brown a few clear buttons with my copics. Last step, I added the big clear button after stamping on it with stazon and coloring it with my copics. It smeared a lot, so I tried to keep clear of the black ink, not so easy!!!
Althought the color combination is unusual to me, I think the final result is ok.
