The 'patterned' papers were made using Distress Inks (Victorian Velvet, Vintage Photo, Wild Honey and Tea Dye) and the Damask Background stamp. The 'Easter Greetings' banner was part of the Easter Greetings stamp - just stamp and cut out the parts you need.

Some other fun tidbits about this project...that orange seam binding is ribbon I dyed last year using the leftover dyes we had used for the eggs! It makes beautiful ribbon colors!
Use foam tape in a hidden place and stick your pin into the foam. It helps to anchor your pin and keep it from falling out.
