A Little Shabby, A Little Chic



Good Morning! Today I have a vintage, sort of shabby chic card to share with you.  I had so much fun creating this flower!!!  I used the 3 different dies: Best Blossoms, Table Setting die (centre of the flower) and the Island Floral die.  The squigglies are from the Sizzlet die Scribbles & Swirls, and the pearls from my stash.  I sprayed the flowers with water and squished them up to make the cardstock more pliable.  Then layered it all together and scrunched and squished somemore. Once I had the shape required, the layers were glued and allowed to dry.  I then sprayed the flowers with shimmer spray tinted pink. 

The main components of the card are: Basic Black & W. White cardstocks, pink retired dsp in Pink Pirouette, retired Night & Day dsp (don't fret though, if you own the MDS program you can download this designer paper to have forever!!). I also used the scalloped border punch, pewter jumbo eyelet, Pink Taffeta, White Satin and organza ribbon. The Musical Notes are a SU! wheel and From the Heart is also SU!,  from the Holidays & Wishes stamp set.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your weekend!!
