A Shabby Chic Wedding

Hello Again!  So glad you could stop and visit for a little while.  Today I'd like to share with you the card I created for our challenge over at Crafty Creations..."Shabby Chic"!  I know this will be a favorite!  Our generous sponsor for this week is...


and I have just the cutest little wedding couple image to play with!

I thought they would look perfect on a cute little easel card (I made my first one a few days ago...and will showcase that one shortly...so stay tuned to see how that went!  LOL)  I  printed and cut the card on my Silhouette Cameo. I painted the silver colored card stock with a coat of lumiere to give it a regal and shimmering effect! Once that had dried I was good to go with assembling the card and beginning with the embellishing!  (I must admit, Shabby Chic for me can sometimes be a bit of a stretch when creating because I automatically want to turn it into a vintage theme...hope you feel I did okay!)

Here's my interpretation of this challenge...

(I had a bit of trouble trying to figure out how to photograph this creation, so my apologies for the poor photos.)

Here's a peek at the lovely couple...they have been colored with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

And lastly, the charming sentiment....which is from a Stamp 'n Up collection.

As far as embellies go on this card...I have to say that Walmart and Dollarama were my best friends when it came to picking up ribbon, flowers, rhinestone swirls, lace, tulle and those awesome butterflies!  The pearls around the sentiment are from Stamp 'n Up!

I'm hoping that any bride and groom would be wowed should this be presented to them...my husband certainly thought it was quite the creation, and wondered how much I would sell it for at a craft sale!  LOL

That's all for me today...short and sweet!  Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations at Crafty Creations Challenges to become even more inspired!  Then be sure to link up your Shabby Chic creation as well!

Until next time...
