Shabby Chic

The theme for In the Pink challenge is Shabby Chic/Vintage. Not my usual style but I had some Raspberry Road paper that came with a magazine. I distressed the edges slightly added some lace distressed with tea die distress ink and layered onto Kraft card.

I cut a doily out of patterned paper and distressed with vintage photo, printed the image and distressed with antique linen before adding.  
I cut a fancy corner out of Kraft card plus a small heart for the sentiment.
The leaves were punched out of mulberry paper and added with the pink roses.
I was fortunate to find in my sewing box the lace dragonfly, just what was needed with 3 small pearls added, plus a silver resin heart to finish in the bottom corner.


  1. Stunning! I love the doily is it Spelbinders? I have never found a punch that makes leaves either, beautiful!

  2. Thanks Jax. No it's Xcut Vintage Notes doily and I'm not sure where the punch is from, could have been Hobbycraft.

  3. A fabulous shabby chic/vintage card.. love the image and your perfect design!

    Thanks for sharing with us at In The Pink..... good luck and hope we see you enter again soon!
