Guesting at The Card Concept!

Hello my sweet peeps! As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I am guesting at The Card Concept this month as a shabby chic designer. When I think of shabby chic, I think of laciness, frilliness, worn edges with bits of bobs of prettiness. This week's inspiration photo didn't seem 'lacy frilly' to me. Instead I saw the opportunity for the bits and bobs to be tucked in!


My eyes fell immediately on the sunflowers in the harlequin vase. Out came my PTI Simple Sunflowers and leaves from their Meadow Greens set. There's an owl in that vase as well, so I added this little guy from Precious Remembrance Shop's Beware Stamp Set. Little acorns are sprinkled throughout the inspiration photo, so I added a few here (DeNami Design). The harlequin paper and vellum were die cut with PPP's Stitched Borders 4 die. My bits and bobs of prettiness came in the form of little black buttons and PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins (6mm & 4mm). I thought the sequins were a good representation of the sparkly glass and silverware in the photo.


Thanks so much for popping in today. Head over to The Card Concept blog to see what fabulousness the Design Team has for you! ~Lisa
