A Layout with Friends and Donna

Hi all, I have another layout for you using the gorgeous Blooming Friendship Collection which I love. I wanted to use the three photos but yet try and make the layout clean and simple. I had seen another layout similar and decided to use the design but yet add my own spin as well. 
First I cut all the elements then backed them all with black cardstock.

Using a pallet knife I spread some texture paste and used the Crackle die as a stamp to give it the shape as on the paper. Once the paste dried I then went over it with ink to darken the cracks. (As soon as I had seen the Crackle die I knew I was going to do this!)

Then I used the Friendly Script stamp to stamp on the banners lightly (stamping on a scrap piece of paper first).

Finally I added all the remaining elements. I punched two circles from the Blooming Friendship and matted them on to a black paper circle then onto a die cut flower.
