Shabby Chic

 

My 3rd post today--only because the computer goes for a tune-up in the morning & I can't be sure when we'll get it back.  I didn't want to miss Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge "here"  which is a sketch this week.  Decided to try & use some of my printed papers.  I tend to buy it & not use it, but I've been inspired by so many cards lately that incorporate beautiful papers.  Shabby Chic is not my style, per se, but thought I'd give it a try for a soft, feminine card.  The papers are Colorbok and the lace with pearls was on super sale when the Joann's moved to their new building.  Just wish I could have gotten more of it!  I used the 2 step butterfly from Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes set and the Ivy die is by Memory Box.  I inked all the edges & there are Stickles on the butterfly & the background roses (sorry I couldn't get it to show taking the picture tonight.)  Hope you've had a lovely weekend & thanks for visiting my blog--I appreciate each of you!
