Inking Up Embossing Folders

Here's a cute layout I've just finished. I started it last Sunday after church but was struck down by the flu the next day. The layout was inspired by one made by Krista Fenton on the My Digital Studio website.
I created my own "texture" around the outside on the base paper by selecting 3 pieces of cardstock, embossing them using different folders, inking them up and dabbed around the edges. For one I used shimmer paint so it's a bit hard to see that one in the photos. The lines across it were made by squishing a piece of linen thread into the grey ink pad then laying it on the page (I rubbed over it with a plastic bag).Stamps: Medallion, Sense of Time, Small Alphabet (Non-SU!)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Grey, Bashful Blue
Ink: Basic Grey, Bashful Blue, Frost White Shimmer Paint
Accessories: Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alpha Dies, Embossing Folders (Vintage Wallpaper, Perfect Polka Dots, Square Lattice), Sponge Dauber, Brayer, Hodgepodge Hardware, White 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Clip
