You will need
1 piece of cardstock
Scraps of P/P
Pearls or Rhinestones
Glimmer Mist or Kindi Glitz

The brown piece is 13cm x 17cm
Distress edges
Small stripe 2cm x 23cm
Punch one long edge
(if you don't have an edge punch tear this edge)
Large stripe 6cm x 24cm
tear along the bottom edge
cut the last 2 pieces 12cm x 16cm and 9cm x 5cm
distress the to along one 12cm edge and the 16cm left hand side edge
one the smaller piece distress along the 9cm right hand side and the top edge
Ink all edges

#Step 3
(sorry that this photo is on it's side but that's how blogger insists on loading it)
stick down the piece of P/P that you have punched an edge on then stick a 28cm piece of lace over top of it with a couple dabs of glue

#Step 4
stick down the 12cm x 16cm and the 13cm x 17cm P/P's
so that they look like this

#Step 5
stick the rest of the P/P's to look like this

#Step 6
add you photo

#Step 7
add some flowers pearls and Title
You have completed a simple LO

You can add more embellishments to you LO
and it will look something like this

I have added a strips of P/P down the left hand side top and right hand side
I punched a border along top and left hand side pieces of P/P
I then embossed a chipboard swirl with Tim Holtz distressing powder and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and added some pearls
I added an extra flower bottom right hand side and a couple on the chipboard swirl and some leaves to the flower sprays which I inked and glimmer misted

LO all done

I just couldn't resist I had to add a bit more

I've added another flower to the spray on the left hand side and a small embossed swirl on the bottom of the spray
I couldn't resist adding a bird cage and little birdie up the top on the left

The LO is now completed
