A Little Shabby Chic

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a fabulous time yesterday with Kath, we made lots of lovely flowers which I will show you in a later post. I had fun too learning to use a very simple straight stitch with a cute little machine that Kath has given me.  It sure is going to be interesting to see how I progress...

Today's card is made using one of the freebie vintage sheets from Astrid.  She has some gorgeous vintage papers and tags.


1. 8 x 8 cream square card.
2. I printed off the backing paper twice and decoupaged the image and made the tag. I distressed around the paper with DI Bundled Sage.
3. I pleated the lace and adhered to one corner, the green doily is what I made which I adhered to the card with Pinflair.
4. In the centre of the doily I added flowers, metal leaves and a stick pin.
5. To finish off I added a metal corner and a double cream bow with a pearl gem for the centre.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
