Shabby Chic Valentine

Hi, Diana here to share with you a card out of my comfort zone. I think the number of shabby chic cards I've made can count on one hand.  But sometimes a challenge is just that - a challenge!  So if I can play along, hope you can too!

I started with scrap paper I found that had soft coloring.

My next layer is a white die cut with Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight popped up with small Joy! Foam Pads.

Next, I cut out a heart from some designer paper. I sponged it with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I then added a strip of music Memory Box Virtuoso Music.

I took some flowers and clustered on top of the Memory Box Amira Flourish, from gold card stock and half a doily pleat folded. Instead of snipping the wire off the end of the flowers, I curled them into tendrils for more texture.

Finally a tag in gold, with a sentiment from ODBD Ornate Frame Sentiments and lots of White Pearls!

I'm never quite sure what is "Shabby Chic". Diana, I think your card is quite lovely whatever it is called.
