BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi Everyone

I've made another floral birthday card, this time for my daughter.  I don't think it's embellished enough to be called shabby chic - I just can't bring myself to overload with too many embellishments.
My daughter's favourite colour is blue and she likes butterflies so I tried to incorporate them both.



Although these type are cards are easier to make in a way than those with images, because of the lack of colouring, it seemed to take me an age to make purely because I couldn't decide what to put on it so it was a relief to get it finished.

Both chipboard elements are painted and glittered and I've put a small amount of glass glitter on the flowers, although none of the aforementioned can be seen in the photo - sorry!  I hope she likes it, her birthday is on Monday, but she doesn't even know I have a blog so she won't see it!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

  6. Oh wow, this is simply stunning! I would say shabby chic is a matter of style not how much you can fit on your card, and your beautiful design has the perfect amount of gorgeous embellishments without being overloaded :-)
    I hope your daughter loves it as much as I do because that's a lot!
    Big hugs, Kat xx
