The embossed background was done using a Cuttlebug embossing folder that was first colored with Crushed Olive distress ink (yay, I got a new ink!)
Here's the technique video for that: http://stamptv.ning.com/video/inking-a-cuttlebug-folder-1
The sentiment is from Garden Silhouettes
The oval was cut from the same cardstock as the back layer (Tim Holtz/Ranger distress collection) and then I also cut a Fancy Tag from it. I cut the tag in half and adhered it to each side of the green oval.
