Instructions: My background is created using layered cardstock, dark teal 12" x 12", white 11.5" x 11.5", kraft 11.25" x 11.25". Cut a strip of the leafy woodgrain patterned paper that is 2" wide, mat it in kraft cardstock. Add strip of the teal pattern on either side (about 1") with 6 coral patterned paper circles down each side. Adhere to the middle of your layout. I cut out one of the 6" x 6" patterned blocks, and cut the middle out of it. Cut a piece of the light orange pattern to 6.5" x 6.5". Adhere the patterned frame to the light orange square using 3D foam tape and adhere to the middle of the layout, just a little higher than the center. Cut out the patterned tag and adhere to the bottom right hand corner of the layout using 3D foam tape, and add a bow of burlap string. I matted my photo in kraft, dark teal and white cardstock and adhered it to the middle of the patterned square using thicker 3D foam dots.

From the hibiscus patterned paper, I fussy cut out 2/3 of the flowers and leaves. Shape all of the flowers and leaves. I layered some of the flowers using 3D foam tape between layers for dimension. I adhered my flowers and leaves to the layout using a combination of hot glue and 3D foam dots for more depth. Once my flowers and leaves were adhered to the layout I added the green Smooch Glitz to all of the leaves and the red to the middle of the flowers. I added the buttons using hot glue. Finally I added the date and simple title using a mixture of letter stickers.
