Round or Square mojo - Shabby chic!

This is pretty much the last mojo for the summer that I will be able to complete during the day - back to school next week :(

Almost all of the paper here is from Michael's (their bins at the front - the background paper is a desktop calender , and the two squares are re purposed little cards).

I used a $ store stencil & lots of Tim Holtz ink, and my cuttlebug for the die cut wings & Fleur de lis. The ribbon is from dollar tree and the flower is from Len's. 'Best Wishes' is an outline sticker.

The sketch is MOJO 206, and can be found here.

Distressed Technique

The pp is DaisyD, the ephemera, and the pic are from ,y collection, MM paint, Jolees frame coated with Rock Candy Stickles, and the metal tag was a gift from a swap. The buttons are also unknown, and I used Ranger crackle paint from Tim Holtz on the heart, which I hand cut. The definition phrase was cut from a piece of paper that I think I got from the dollar store, and I have no idea of the manufacturer.
