Shabby Birthday

Hello again!  Tonight I'm sharing a card that took me forever to complete!  I love the stamp but I just couldn't get my creative "mojo" going for some reason.  Finally I finished it this afternoon so I thought I would share with you.

I started by stamping the flower on Shimmery White card stock, then coloring with a blender pen and reinkers.  Choosing this beautiful designer series paper helped determined the colors used in coloring the stamped image.  After coloring was complete, I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut it.  It was then adhered to a Confetti White oval that had been layered over a larger Soft Suede oval.

The Soft Suede base was layered with a Soft Suede panel covered with two pieces of the retired Beau Chateau dsp, then everything was distressed and sponged with Crumb Cake or Soft Suede.  White Jute ribbon and Linen Thread were then wrapped around the card the panel before adhering to the base.  It was finished off with Basic Pearls.

I used this week's sketch challenge at Paper Players for my inspiration, although I changed it by replacing banners with ribbon.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  I'll be back later this weekend with another card to share.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy yours!
