Shabby Chic Birthday Card

Hello there

Here is a shabby chic birthday card that I made for my sisters birthday recently. Just lately I love to gesso my papers, and this card was no exception. The roses, shabby seam binding and cameo may have got caught in the cross fire too lol. It turned out so pretty even if I do say so myself, although as usual it took me around three hours to make it! I have such admiration for you ladies who can whip up a card in 10 minutes.

The lovely papers, gorgeous vintage image, shabby seam binding and Frantage embossing powders all came from Live and Love Crafts and the flowers and cameo from The Hobby House. I am loving that little cameo and I have a bag with about 5 left in different colours so I can’t wait to use them in other craft projects.
I am entering this card in the challenge over at Craft roomchallenge, matching up ‘tic tac toe’s’ with the pearls, lace and butterfly. Go over and take a look at the design teams creations, there is some amazing stamping going on over there.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come over to my blog to take a peep.
