First take the piece of Rain card and gut it to leave a 1” border. Cut the coconut swirl card to 11” and mat on the Rain border piece. 
Next take three Distress Oxides: Salvaged Patina, Worn Lipstick and Fossilised Amber. Press each of the three ink pads onto a hard surface (one that one stain like a glass cutting mat or a craft mat) and spray with a little water from a mister bottle. You then take a wet paintbrush and dip it into a puddle of the first colours. Flick this onto the white card by tapping the paintbrush across your forefinger, hard, to make splashes. Repeat this for each colour. Allow to dry.
Cut your photo to 6” x 3” (you could leave it at 6” x 4” if you prefer) and mat onto the gutted piece of the Rain card. 
Cut two 3” x 4” rectangles reverse side of the Definitive patterned paper. Cut four pieces of the Feel Good a patterned paper measuring 3” x 4”. Use two of the reverse side and two of the front side with pictures or sayings of your choice. Ink all of the edges of the six pieces using the pink Worn Lipstick ink using a dauber. 
Place the first of the six panels approx 1” from the left edge and the third panel approx 1” from the right edge and centre the middle section in between the two middle pieces. 
Mount your photo on foam pads for added dimension and add to the lower right hand side. Add a title from the Cocoa Vanilla Happy Days Chipboard earth the photo. 
Fussy cut one of the gold frames and add it to the top right panel on foam pads also. 
Fussy cut a few flowers from the Cocoa Vanilla Happy Days Lush Blooms and add around the left side of the photo running your thumb nail over the petals to curl them slightly. Again ink the edges of the petals using the pink ink. 
Add stickers from the Happy Days Accessory sticker sheet and titles to finish including a cluster on the top left of the white card.
