Shopping Our Stash Challenge #17


At SOS we are asked this week
to sort through our stash and pull out some vintage or shabby elements and/or distress our project for the "Vintage or Distressed or Shabby Chic" challenge. Now this is my kind of challenge... love this!!!
I say that and to be truthful, I worked two days on this little card...


The paper is from Graphic 45 Baby 2 Bride
Collection "From This Moment". I also used a bit of Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden 6x6 Pad and a scrap of Creative Imaginations, plus three colors of cardstock.


This sweet image is from Crafty Secrets.
She is atop two die cuts... Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Floral Doily Motifs. I used Antique Linen Distress Ink on all edges plus my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.


The flourish is part of the Spellbinders
Floral Doily Motifs set. I cut dies from Die-namics Butterflies, Rolled Daisy and Pretty Posies sets. I sprayed them all with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.


I added some of my I Am Roses flowers,
that were also sprayed with the Marshmallow GM, to the centers of the paper flowers I assembled. Then dabbed on some Antique Linen DI. The leaves are cut from Sizzix Branch w/Leaves. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for that paper piece down the center.


Sprinkled a few Recollections and
Queen & Co adhesive backed pearls here and there.
Thank you for stopping by today.
I love our visits together, but I'm doing all the talking. Please tell me what you think...

I wanted to pop over to thank you for your very kind comment on my blog Linda, and found a treasure. What an adorable image to build a lovely card around, and lovely it is. The muted color palette, beautiful floral embellies and lacey elements combine to make a gorgeous card. Thanks for the inspiration. xoxo
