ABNH--Shabby Chic


The current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero is to create
a shabby chic card or project. Here's my attempt at shabby chic.


The doily was cut out of patterned paper and all the edges of both the doily
and the card were ink distressed. The flower was given to me by my sweet friend Alice
and there's a bit of pale pink seam binding underneath it.


I used the Vintage Cabinet die as the base of my card
since it has a rounded top that matched the roundness of the doily.
A few butterflies and framed sentiment were ink distressed
and finished off the card.

Link up your shabby chicness here at A Blog Named Hero.
The prize? A $25 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!
