They just remind me of simpler times!
The butterflies have been fussy cut from a piece of patterned paper within the collection, and the sentiment on the bottom of the card as well.
I find that using elements from all of the same collection allows you to create a very quick card that matches beautifully. Each piece has been inked with a brown color around the edges to add to the vintage and aged feeling of the project. And, the beauty of a vintage/shabby chic creation is that you can add elements from your everyday stash to add to the unique look of the creation. We all have those few flowers, buttons, ribbons on hand that we have just a few of and would like to use them somehow. Shabby chic crafting is perfect for the use of these little bits and pieces. You can see here that I've added some lace, some tulle style flowers on lace, a few straggler buttons, several types of ribbons, a purple button and some yellow paper flowers. Pull it all together with the right paper collection, and you have a beautiful piece that the lucky recipient is sure to treasure for years to come.
