Other Elements used:Versa Mark ink pad-Pinecone & Lindy's Magical-Wisteria Purple Teal
Here are some close ups.....

I trimmed the outside edges of the Provence sheet, plus cut out the center, then distressed the edges, & glued the pieces onto Fresh Delivery BS sheet. I also ripped the top right & lower left, then rolled the edges, glued the chicken wire under, then using a paper pierce, I poked in holes, & did some hand stitching.
I kept the chipboard simple, just inked the edges, & for the blue-purple I used Lindy's Wisteria Purple...

I matted the photo with Provence, Provence-BS, & Fresh Delivery distressed the edges & hand stitched it together. I then glued this on to the burlap, wrapped the jute around & glued on the circle piece that is in the  Cottage Blooms Package.....
Love, Love all of the Blooms that are in this Collection, so Beautiful, & so easy to work with. In this cluster I used Layered Embellishments, Blossom Blends-Bluebell & Aloe, Seaside Blooms-Aloe, & Garden Seeds-Linen

In this cluster I used: Blossom Blends-Linen, & Garden Seeds-Bluebell...
Here are a few more close ups....
