Hi friends, I guess you could say better late than never. My life is currently being ruled by whether I have internet or not; today was not. I’m learning my lesson, I had everything ready to go but never schedule posts and it certainly caught up with me today. No worries, I know you all cruise by when you have a second and I thank you. Today is Day of Giving Friday and I have a new card to share. Recently I’ve leaned more to the shabby side and it’s relatively easy to do with inspiration. I had this lovely piece of vintage looking lace that I simply wanted to build a card around and I love the texture of burlap :-)
Because there is so much detail in the background, I kept die cuts to a minimum, using simply enough to get a message across. One of my favorite thing to do is to cut my dies and use the edges as embellishment. I used one of the tags from Spellbinders Renaissance Tags One to add some interest behind the flowers and I cut up edges from Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Elements to decorate my hand cut pennant and finished up with the hello from Spellbinders Sentiments 5
