Embossed Toilet Paper Challenge with Blockheads Final Project

Hi Dreamers!
The Embossed Toilet Paper Technique Challenge closes on June 21st.  So, still a few more days to get your projects posted.    For this sample, I used one of the smaller embossing folders (2 1/2" x 4 1/4").  This made a nice little frame within which I stamped.  

Materials List:
Toilet Paper (2ply)
Sea Shells with Rectangle Frame (Frame)
ATC Set-Honey Bees (Flower)
Verses-Feel Better (sentiment on the inside)
Pesto Adirondack Reinker- Ranger
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink Reinker - Ranger
Pistachio,Olive Grove, and Tuxedo Black ink Pads - Memento
Small Embossing Folder
Dark Green CS
Colored Staples

I followed the Technique instructions.  I added the reinkers while the toilet paper was wet and before I closed  up  the Embossing Folder.  I added a few drops of reinker and then sprayed some water-repeat.  When the toilet paper was dry, I trimmed the piece a bit.  I stamped the Rectangle Frame with Pistachio ink and then the Flower with Olive Grove ink.  

The Embossed Toilet Paper piece was then stapled to a dark green card base.  I used some copper colored staples.  On the inside, I distressed White CS with Pesto and Frayed Burlap inks.  And, stamped another flower in Olive Grove.  The sentiment is stamped with Tuxedo Black.  

I did a little sample on regular white CS to see if I like the Rectangle frame and the flower together.  And, as you can see above I did like the combo.  The sample looked really nice and I thought I could make a nice card with that too.  I grabbed some scraps that were laying around and put them together to make this nice little card (3 3/4 x 4 1/4").    Some small pearls were added and a pretty May Arts ribbon.  

Well, how about a few challenges:
Cheerful Stamp Pad: Garden
