Shabby Chic, Take One
Well, with the induction of Webster's Pages into the Limelight repertoire, I was anxious to try my hand a more of a shabby-chic look. I see lots of places for additions (ink, at least!), but I played around with this yesterday and came up with this card. What fun it was! And I must say that EVERY SINGLE paper in my Webster's paper pad was dripping with gorgeous sweetness! I will be diving back into that pad later today!
Hope you enjoy this card. And, YES, the messy stitching job on top? I MEANT to do that. Really. ;) Did you notice the center of the focal hydrangea? That is a GLITTER SPARKLER! That's the single product I was most excited about in the Webster's order... just love these little sparkly gems! You get 20 in a package (various sizes) for $4.99, so they are quite a steal! In lieu of ribbon on this card, I made the top piece of patterned paper a little longer than it needed to be and slightly distressed and curled it. Then I added a healthy coating of Crystal Stickles for dimension and sparkle.
Papers: Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane/Life's Portrait paper pad, Cream (PTI). Accessories: Life's Fabric Fancies, Glitter Sparklers, Black Rhinestones, Crystal Stickles, Prima Hydrangeas, Sewing.
