Shabby Chic & Embellished

Don't you love it when you create a card from 
the vortex of your own creative mind?
I rarely have the time to spend several (won't tell you how many I spent on this one) hours
to make something truly original. Thank God for my friends in the SU blog world who share their ideas each day to inspire and allow me to CASE such beautiful creations!
 I am a casing, tweaking , color combo switching queen.
But today I took the time and made something from the heart that really makes me smile.
I always make all my samples and put them on the shelf and whatever cards make me smile the most when I look at them are the cards I usually end up teaching at class! Not always the most profitable approach but my stamping friends seem to like it!
So here it is- I really hope you like it!

I love the eclectic vintage shabby chic feel of this card! It is a frilly fru fru!
If someone sent me this I would be over the moon! Just saying>>
CS: Vanilla base with Natural Composition DSP( the sheet with the lines), 
Tea for Two DSP, First Edition DSP, Amore Amore DSP
Stamps: Hey There Friend & the splashy dots (love em')
(From the NEW Paper Pumpkin kit coming out in March)
 I am addicted to these 2 stamps. I would by the whole kit just for the 2 stamps but thank goodness I happen to love the whole kit!
Punches: 3/4 in circle,butterfly,itty bitty punch trio,1 1/4 circle scallop, 1 inch square
Big Shot Heat Framelits, 
Accessories:Vanilla Seam Binding, Tea Time Trinkets, Vintage brad, trinkets clip & pin and since I can't sew a lick I used my gel pen around the edges to give it the illusion of stitching.
The placement of the bow and hearts was actually the most time consuming part. I had to get the right flow going? Do you do that? Now is the perfect time to stock up on your wish list.
