I hope all is well with you! I'm keeping warm in my house for the roads are still too treacherous to travel on. We have a level 3 snow emergency for our county. I was due to work today, but my boss called me last evening and told me that our clinic is closed. So, I did some fun card making in my craft room last night. Before I show you the card, I'll show you a photo of our wintery scene. There isn't a lot of snow, but the roads are covered in ice. The last time I checked we had -14 below zero last night...brrrrr!
OK, now onto my card. You can see the above inspiration photo for The Shabby Tea Room. It is so lovely! I could not resist playing along for I love roses and I do love pink! Here is a photo of my card...
I started with a white card base and added layers of sweet Authentique paper. I die cut the pink frame from Spellbinder's(Decorative Labels Eight). The image is from Authentique, also. I added little hearts with a flourish and applied glitter for the little Valentine. Pearls and roses were placed around the frame. Gorgeous seam binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties was tied with glittered button and twine. I used a decorative punch and stamped music notes onto white paper just under the ribbon. Pom pom trim to finish off the card. I must say that I love all the pink goodness on this card. I do love some shabby/chic because it just speaks to my feminine soul...hehehe! Ok, friends, thank you for dropping by! Take care and stay warm and safe out there, hugs!
