I kept close to the design and used some old Kaiser papers I found in my stash


I added some Green Tara Heirloom flowers
I whitewashed my background paper, added some black splatters, used a Kaisercraft Texture stamp and tore the bottom of my background paper for extra detail:

"Great Grandmother"

I used lots of different flowers!

I cut some "Apple Blossoms" and "30mm flower white lace" with a "1cm rose":
