Hi everyone! This is one of my first attempts at the "shabby chic" look. I got the blue/pink roses paper from my super thoughtful and generous aunt who sent me a box full of scrapbooking goodies she got at a yard sale. That paper and the blue plaid paper are Daisy D's and the cream swirls paper is by K&Co. The green photo corners and tag are by Making Memories. I'm not sure who made the paper ribbon (multi-colored circles)- I got it at a scrapbooking yard sale sponsored by my LSS, but there was no label on it. I used a stamp by Fiskars (birthday gift from my boyfriend :) ) and stamped it with some pink chalk ink by Colorbox. I'm not really a huge fan of tying thread through button holes- this was the first time I did it, and it was more effort than I like to put into my cards, so I'm not sure I'll keep doing it, but I'm glad I tried it. Anyway, I really like how all the different elements came together on this card. This really isn't my style, but it's so pretty and I just might have to keep dabbling! :) I hope you enjoy my efforts; thanks for stopping by!
