Shabby Chic Christmas Card I

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of the fist of two cards I made today:

I made some glittery flowers and had enough to make two cards... I was not able to capture the shimmer of the glitter on flowers and feathers in the pictures, but believe me they are very glittery!

The background is created with texture paste and flourish stencil, edges were distressed and the sentiment was stamped on a piece of is from MFT designed by wonderful Mona Pendleton.

I added a shabby bow and couple of cut out feathers sprinkled with glitter...a few crystals here and there just to add some bling...and a keepsake box to complement the card's design...

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge T is for Tis the Season

Craft For The Craic Something Glittery for November

Deep Ocean Challenge #117 White and one other color (mine is beige)

Scrap Magic Challenge Blog Contrast #10 Textured/Smooth with this gorgeous inspiration photo

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Christmas

I hope you enjoyed this post...

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

  16. Oh wow how beautiful and so gorgeously white for Christmas. This could also be beautiful for a winter wedding too! Shame about not getting the shimmer across, I find it's always hit and miss whether I catch it or not, but I can imagine a gorgeous frosty glitter-shimmer on the flowers xx
