Shabby Chic Card

Hi everyone, it's Friday yay!! I posted a video on this card that I created for I Am Roses which can be watched here. It's a coordinating card that I made to go with the Altered Pennant that I did a couple days ago. The paper is 5th Avenue from Melissa Frances, which I still have tons of from my 6x6 paper pad. I fussy cut the paper banner from the patterned paper. Underneath the banner is a stamped banner image that I embossed with white embossing powder. I layered the two together and it fit perfectly. I then popped up the banner with dimensional foam dots. Tiny pearls were added to the banner string as well.
The stamp set is Impression Obsession - Fabulous Friend. I used a large circle punch and a scallop circle die from QuicKutz (Lifestyle Crafts) to frame the sentiment. I used more pattern paper in the inside of the card. All the edges of the papers were inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I chose to use soft pinks and creams in the flowers that I used. The white rose below is a White Puffy Semi Rose Bud. I paired that flower up with a Soft Pink Curly Rose. This little bouquet lays on two Small Natural Skeleton Leaves. Small White Flowers and Small White Pink Flowers 2 Tone are placed on the top and bottom corners of the card.

To add more bling into the mix, I finished off the card with a row of pearls on the bottom. So that's my card for today. Have a great weekend everybody and thanks for stopping by!
