A Shabby Chic Birthday Card with Lace

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of a card I made for my next door neighbor and a very good friend:


I used two layers of patterned paper for my base, distressed the edges on both and printed a computer generated sentiment.


I used a doily die cut, handmade rolled flowers, brand die cuts and some lace to create this shabby design.


One more look at the finished card...

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Cardabilities #132 which is their final sketch, making me very sad :(


Let's Craft and Create Challenge #105 Use dies or punches

Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #36 with this color palette:


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes

 DL ART Thankful Thursday October Challenge

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...







UPDATE 10/15/2015
