Shabby Chic

Hi Crafters,

This is my second post for today, must be on a roll :)

I have made another card using these beautiful shabby/vintage papers from Michele R Designs. The theme on the papers is sewing so I went with that for the embellishments.

 Recipe
Papers - Michele R Designs - Sew Shabby
Sentiment -  LOTV ~Quotables Set 61
Recycled Lace
Crochet Flower
Paper Doily
Buttons
Twine
Pearl Trim



I distressed and inked the edges of the papers once I had printed them out to complete the shabby feel. Then I layered them up with the doily and lace trims to complete the look. I was given the beautiful crochet flower, I wish I could make these - I've tried and they turn out wonky :/ it's the only one I have but I had to use it here as it seemed perfect for the card.

Creative Moments - #76 Use A Sentiment

Lorraine, this is absolutely gorgeous. The papers are stunning and you've designed with them to perfection. The lacy trims, sweet buttons, and beautiful pearls add the loveliest of textures. The crochet flower is gorgeous... I wish I could make those, too. Beautifully designed. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Deep Ocean!

Hugs and blessings,
