You are such a joy!
I had some fun craft time with this shabby card
last night! I just love adding little details here
and there with shabby goodies! This card is for
the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room.
And, here is the gorgeous inspiration photo...
I made this card for a niece who has a birthday in
October. Whew, that is next month. I can't believe
that it's September already! Anyways, I got out
a Melissa Frances vintage frame for the focal point.
I applied gold embossing powder around the frame, die,
and chair. The little chair is in the lower right corner.
I love crocheted doilies, so I placed one behind the die.
A piece of it behind the frame, also. Liquid pearls
were placed on the die and a tiny dot for the bird's eye.
Some beautiful ribbon from Paper Sweeties. Little
felt hearts, pearls, and gems to "pretty" up my shabby
card. I finished by distressing the edges of the card
with tea dye ink.
Ok, I must run for now since the first Ohio State
football game of the season is on. My husband has
been counting the days for this day to come! I'll go
and watch a little with him. I might sneak off to my
craft room again during half time!:-) Thanks for
visiting here today! Take care, hugs!
