Sanded Soft Sweet Shabby

This card is just that--soft to the touch, sweet with sentiment, and sanded for texture.  I love the laser cut heart doily from the More Amore DSP that sets up the focal point of this card.  You get a full sheet of red and a full sheet of pink, but both colors are white on the back--they are cool!

When I saw the gorgeous inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room I just had to join their challenge this week.   I have used a collection of new items to create this card: Pool Party Coredinations Card Stock, More Amore DSP, Honeycomb TIEF, Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits, and the Vanilla Flower Trim (total awesomeness on that trim).  I have also included Victoria Crochet Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Linen Thread, Crumb Cake ink, the Jewelry Tag punch, and the Tiny Tags stamp set.

There are plenty of amazing and cool new stamps and accessories from the Spring Occasions Catalog that I am telling you will knock your socks off.  Are you looking for fabulous ideas?  The entire team at Create with Connie and Mary are busy at work putting together a fabulous new Spring Edition and now is the time to get the Early Bird price savings.

  1. What a stunning creation ... I adore all the shabby elements you've added to your card to create an elegant and beautiful delight! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely work with us in the Tea Room this week :)

  2. Your card is beautiful - love all the elements - I had to case it!!! It pushed me into using the Flower Trim - so much softer and easier to use than I anticipated.

    Thanks for all you share.

  3. A beautiful piece of art. Absolutely stunning. I will have to case it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with us.

  4. Elizabeth..where to begin? This is so shabby chic and elegant that I HAD to CASE. Thanks for the inspiration~ you saved me!! This is one of the cards that will be made at my next Stamp Camp. I just posted it on my blog and raved about you and your blog!! Hugs, Erin
