My Favorite Card ....

Hi Everybody,

When I made this Shabby Chic card  I really fell in love with it and it still is one of my favorite ones done in that style.

Everything just went in place first time and the colours are so soft and gentle

The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have been altered with the white Gesso and glitter

The resin Frame is also from WOC and the little picture that I found in my "Stash" fits in there perfectly

I have added in some of the Architectural  Accents  from Spellbinders and other left over die cuts that are in my bit box

The tiny pearls are from Want2Scrap and they have been added randomly around the flowers.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Morning Christina,
    WOW!!! It's stunning! I think that if I were able to make something as wonderful as this I would NEVER send it to anyone, instead I think I would have to frame it. It really is a work of art! Everything works so well and I love all the colours of the flowers. I should be getting the kitchen ready for decorating but I feel the need to shut myself in the craft room instead and see what I've got to hand and see if I can have a go at creating something shabby chic instead lol.
