Shabby Chic Baby Card

Well I should say my version of shabby chic!! I have been wanting to try a card like this out for along time!!! I visit Melissa Frances blog and the Lilybean Paperie blog everyday and they have some beautiful stuff on there!!
The sketch for the card is from CPS. It was a wonderful and versatile sketch to work with. I was inspired to actually try this type of card after viewing Kristine's blog. She made the most beautiful shabby chic card out of a paper bag!! It is darling!! So thanks to her for giving me the push I needed!!
Paper is from Basic Grey's sultry paper pad. The papers in that pad are BEAUTIFUL!!! I only got the 6x6 and am thinking of getting the bigger one. I used prima flowers and just saturated the hydrangea in my timber brown staz-on to get a rich brown. The sticker is from Melissa Frances, rub-ons are 7gypsies and buttons are from my stash. The paper ribbon and mini pearls are K & Co. I distressed the edges of almost everything, I know AGAIN (LOL). I just can't help it I think I need therapy!! Well I must admit this card was alot of fun to make!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week-end!! I know I said that before but this is it!! I have to get the dishes done!
