Frosted Designs Challenge - Punches!

This Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs we are challenging you to use your punches on your project!
I used a heart punch by Martha Stewart to make the flowers on this framed piece:

The background paper is "Jacobean Black" by Autumn Leaves and is mounted on the backerboard that came with the frame. The mini canvases are by Daler Rowney Ltd and are covered with vintage book paper. The flowers are made with papers from the "Victoria Garden" line by Echo Park with center brads by Bo Bunny. Of course, everything has Distress Ink on it by Tim Holtz for Ranger in various colors. The frame is by Pinnacle.

The challenge this week at The Paper Variety is anything other than a card or layout and I am entering this piece in their challenge.

If you think you'd like to try using vintage book paper on your projects see my post here to buy an awesome variety pack to get you started! 

This week's prize for one random winner at Frosted designs is an adorable mini album kit by Artsy Albums. So get out your punches, make a layout, card, or off the page project and link it up at Frosted Designs!

Thanks for stopping by! 
I appreciate your comments!

LOVE this! Love how you covered & mounted the small frames and centered the flowers.

I laughed when I saw you used EP VIctoria Gardesn paper - maybe that was part of why I was so drawn to this - I think I have used every little scrap of that paper pad!
