Be Happy

Hi!

It's week 10 of the IBSIC, this week we have a sketch to use. Here is my card I have created for the challenge.
I started this card with a kraft card base. I then added some white craft paint to the base.  I then layered my patterned paper from The Old World stack by DCWV. I punched a border to attach to my lovely pink patterned paper followed by wrapping a length of seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures and tying in a fussy bow embellishing with a white rose. 
For the focal area, a rectangle of Kraft cardstock was cut and layered with a piece of patterned paper also from The Old World Stack.  A sentiment was added to the die-cut piece. A picket fence was punched and painted adding some beautiful flowers to the lower right corner. Finishing touches include rhinestones, buttons and pearls. 

I found further inspiration at The Shabby Tea Room. :-)
and The City Crafter Challenge Blog. A Rose is a Rose :-)
Squiggle Stamps - Ribbons and Roses and
Ribbon Carousel  - Fancy Flowers

It's now your turn to link up your version of the IBSIC sketch above.  I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for taking a look.
~Tammy~
