A shabby altered block and cards

Hello Sweet friends!

This card uses three sentiments included in a delightful little set called Little Flowers. I stamped the flower image twice and fussy cut and distressed the edges before applying to my pieced patterned paper card base. I just love the pop of turquoise against the softer colors. 
The script of the font is just so beautiful and elegant! **love**

Up next is a card created using images from Vintage Postcards.
This set is just full of fun vintage images which makes my heart sing! The little pocket created is made from felt to host the flowers. 
All edges have been distressed for that shabby vintage feel!
Here is the back of the card stamped with Made with Love.

Last but not least is a little home decor piece using an Eiffel Tower image. 

I took an unfinished decorative block sanded and gave a good coat of paint. Next, I went back over it with my sander to rough it up for a distressed look. 
I took several die-cut flowers and stamped them with a fleur de lis image. I distressed all the edges and layered into a beautiful bloom. 
Here is a close up of the bloom.

Below is a view of the top of the block. You can see a little more of the decorative detail.
Thanks so much for sharing a bit of your day with me. I'll be back tomorrow with another post. I hope you have enjoyed todays projects.

**I am personally entering my decorative block into the Catered Crop Challenge Letter B - B is for Block or Bloom!
Have a stamping good day!
