I used a bunch of my favorite items purchased from Crop Chocolate: Teresa Collins Give Thanks, Bazzil and Echo Park Be Mine cardstock, Slice Cordless cutting machine, Bravissimo and Vintage Findings cartridges, Perfect Pearls-white and silver, Doodlebug brad, MM brad, Distress Ink-Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot and Pumice Stone, Lush rhinestones and brad, MM Paper Reverie pearl gems, Stickles-Crystal, Alcohol Ink-Raspberry, Distress Crackle Paint-Clear Rock Candy and Viper Snaketape. Other items used: grunge board, Distress Stain and Ink-Spun Sugar, Twinery twine, Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms, Sissix dies-Spooky Tree and 3D Flowers, Tim Holtz dies-bird, leaf and butterflies, Tim Holtz Distress Marker, ribbon, wooden-spools, dowels, finials and plaque, paint, moss and Gorilla Glue. I also used a handmade picket fence by UmWow Studio, it was part of an embellishment kit-A Dated Journey.
