Working with my new teamies on the Swedish House Crafts DT has rubbed off on me! I would never have created a card like this before seeing all their gorgeous work - it is no where near the standard of those ladies, but I am trying!
I used a PTI paper for the base and the next printed paper is from the Shabby chic section of the free cd rom with Crafters Companion magazine. I used a TH distress tool for the edges and inked with CE chalk cloud. I then stamped a Penny Black sentiment onto a circle and used the chalk colour cloud again around the edges and on the doily.
I had this beautiful bunch of flowers as part of a kit - they came like this, so I simply added some ribbon. In the same kit where the border and corner shapes which I again used chalk colour cloud on. I think the Chalk colour clouds really lend themselves to this shabby chic look.
The dies are from TL and thanks to CD Sunday for the flower one which I just won the other week.
Finishing touches are some buttons and some tiny CE hexagon glitter jewels which catch the light and even show up in my photo.
I'm entering this card into the current CD Sunday challenge for Shabby chic.
