Let's Scrap - Scrap Our Stash Challenge #14 & Frosted Designs Flourish Challenge

I managed to complete another layout today! This one is for the Let's Scrap - Scrap Our Stash Challenge #14 and for Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday Challenge Flourishes.  Here is my completed layout:

The Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs was to use flourishes on your card, layout or project.
The Let's Scrap challenge was:
1. Use at least 20 pieces of chipboard in at least 5 different shapes (like butterfly, gear, flower, photo corners, swirls, etc) Please note that individual letters used do not count individually---only individual WORDS count as one. Also you can’t count different fonts as different shapes. Here’s the twist --- I don’t want you to use the chipboard as it is. I want you to alter it. You can use paint, markers, watercolors, embossing, colored pencils, or even glitter, You could even use fabric, paper, or felt on it, But it can’t be plain. You have to dress it up somehow— so be creative!!! I want to see at least two different techniques used to alter it.
2. Use cardstock as your background paper and also alter it. Ideas of things you can use are masks and mists, doodling, embossing, stamp or sew designs on it
3. Use fiber, embroidery thread or twine somewhere on your layout (no ribbons or lace)

I used 23 pieces of chipboad; my shapes were banners, hearts, circles, brackets, and swirls.  I altered the chipboard with paint and stamping of the letters on the honeymoon banner.  I used yellow cardstock and altered it with stamping and stitching at the banners.  I used embroidery thread at the banners and the tie around the paper clip.

I also used sketch #259 from Scrapbook Challenges.  Here is the sketch:

Here are a couple of detailed photos:
