A little Shabby xoxo

Hi there!

(Woohoo, I am excited and honored that this card was chosen as the Winning Recipe card at The Catered Crop on 11/25/12)

I decided to take a little break from holiday creations and create something shabby!
Started with a card base of Rustic Cream cardstock and placed my patterned paper on top.  I layered the center of the card with a tag I cut from a vintage rose image I had in my stash, a digital image from The House Across the Bay Etsy shop, and circular heart border die layered with a pretty pink patterned paper and a dainty teacup embellished with a beautiful paper rose.
Two little pennant flag banners are tucked in behind the tag.  A length of crochet trim was added to the top of the card.

A shabby bow was created with some vintage seam binding trim embellished with a vintage button and a cute little tag with a sentiment from Paper Sweeties - You Make Me Smile.
A final touch was adding a little butterfly which I have punched from Rustic Cream cardstock which has been embossed and embellished with a sweet rose. 

I am joining in the fun at Catered Crop - Rustic and Lace and Paper Playtime - Anything Goes

Well, I hope you have enjoyed my card! I hope you have a great Tuesday! 
Blessings!
