Shabby Chic Coffee Lovers' Card

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of my latest make:

I used Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour collection 6" x 6" papers to create this card. The colors of this collection perfectly fit Maja Design Blog April Mood Board...

I created a frame by gluing together several cutout frames to give the frame extra dimension and decorated it with liquid pearls.

I made the cherry blossoms out of heavy white cardstock and painted some of them using pearlex powder...

The shabby bow was made using the seam binding ribbon and pink thin silk ribbon...

The little tags are cut outs from Coffee in the Arbour collection as well as the framed image...

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

Maja Design April challenge with this gorgeous mood board:

Creative Artiste challenge #13 Anything Goes using chipboard, stencils or flowers (I used my hand made flowers)

Moving Along With the Times Spring Flowers Challenge

Card Mania Challenge "Spring"

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by...
