Shabby Chic Dreams

Hi Dreamers!
How is your day going??  Doing great here.  I had some time today to get a couple projects made.   I pulled  out some of my new Gina K Design stamps (Dreams and Lacy Borders sets)  and made this shabby chic card.

This was a fun card to make.  I cut a piece of lace fabric the size of the card base, and glued it onto the card front.   I stamped on Blush Blossom CS (a shell pink color) with brown ink.   I hand cut the edge of the lace stamped piece--not too hard.

I dry embossed a piece of the Blush Blossom CS and layered that onto the card.  I added a layer of blue/green velum under the main image.

Added some tiny pearls on the edge of the lace stamped piece and  tied Glace crochet ribbon next to that.


And, now for some Challenges!!
