The cardstock for image was was first run though the Cuttlebug using a frame stencil. It was trimmed down to the frame shown. The image was then stamped, painted and the stamens highlighted. The pearls were added. The words were stamped.
The embossed background was done with a Cuttlebug Folder and the raised parts painted. The Pink background paper was mounted on the Green background paper. The image was mounted with the ribbon taped under it and then it was mounted to the embossed background, which was mounted on the Pink and Green cardstocks, and then the ribbon attached behind that. Then the three corners were punched. That was mounted on the white folded inside card and the corners were punched again. Four thicknesses would be too much for the corner punch. This way it only has to actually go through the 2 white cardstocks and used the already punched to match it up.
The Stickpin was assembled and mounted on the ribbon. The clutch was sealed with Glossy Accents and added to the end of the pin. The bow was mounted over the Stickpin. The last pearl was mounted in the lower right hand corner.

I generally use Domtar 80 or 110 lb. cover. I purchase 11"X17" from a local paper supplier and then cut it down to 8.5X11. It costs me about half of what I pay for the Neenah, but it doesn't do watercolor well at all so I use it for the inside fold, 5.5"X8.5" folded.
Ribbon is from either SU retired or Michaels.
