Shabby Chic- Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge

Shabby Chic 'Love'

Hi all you lovely crafters,

here is my DT project for the

starting today and runs for the week. I love the shabby chic style I was delighted to get an opportunity to make my first 'shabby'card.

I had just taken delivery of some Wild Rose Studio'Letters from Paris' backing paper I bought from Creatief and they proved to be ideal for this project.The ribbon, lace, bow ans buttons came from my stash

The green script backing paper was distessed with green ink, crumpled and torn, and adhered to a white cardstock base that had been ink distressed also. A strip of lace was added to the left-hand side of the card and embellished with a hand-made lace and ribbon flower with a suede-heart brad at the centre. The torn corner of a lace doilly,  distessed with green ink was creased and pleated and adhered to the card. The birdcage was cut from white cardstock and distressed and added to the card.A piece of white card was used for the word 'love' and the card was finished with a pink bow and buttons

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Your time and comments are appreciated.
