Enjoy your life

Happy New Year! 
Time for a new challenge over at Crafter's Companion USA! Let's get busy...shall we :)

Create a card or project with a Shabby Chic or Vintage theme - the focal image, as an embellishment, on your patterned paper, make a gift for someone, make a set of cards - any way you interpret the challenge!

I took a panel of ivory cardstock and stamped some flowers from the stamps set - Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy - A New Leaf.  I colored very lightly some of the images with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils 034 and 087. Then I embossed the panel with 6" x 6" Regal Damask Embossing Folder. I sponged distress ink around the panel edges and on top of the raised embossed areas.

I used Circle Doilies to cut and emboss a pink doily from Pink Pearl Shimmering Cardstock. A little distress ink is sponged on it. In the closeup pics, you can see the beautiful shimmer of the pink shimmering cardstock. It diecuts and embosses beautifully!

The heart is cut from the Hearts Die set, stamped with a sentiment from the Sentimentals - Memories are Made and sponged with distress ink around the edges. I also machine stitched on the heart. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The flowers are stamped with Old Olive Distress Ink and colored with the SN pencils.

I used Pink Pearl Shimmering Cardstock to create the ruffled panel that I machine stitched to the bottom of the ivory panel. Then I sponged on some distress. I added a couple pieces of ribbon and adhered the entire panel to a kraft carstock panel. Before adhering the piece to the card front, I stamped the little corner image with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.I hope you can join us for this months challenge. Have fun!
