Went a little out of my usual style to make a pastel shabby chic type card. It was fun to do...I may have to make another one soon!
The card layout is based on the sketch at Cardabilities. Colors chosen to fit JustRite challenge Spring Cheer. The card base is corrugated board (by Reflections) and I applied Tim Holtz Picket Fence stain along the edges for a soft white washed look. The layered papers (My Mind's Eye, In Bloom...stashed for a little while now!) were all distressed with a nail file and Picket Fence applied at will. :)
The sentiment "Sweet Friend" (JustRite's Grand Sentiments) was stamped in the corner and three pale yellow gems were added. The lovely flourish under the flowers is the flourish from Spellbinders Venetian Motifs.
The inside is more shabbied In Bloom paper. The sentiment and border (Grand Sentiments again) was die cut using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles. Bling applied around the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a bright and happy week!
