Shabby Chic Valentine card

I have been wanting to try this for a while now, Magnolia-licious highlite's DT challenge for February is Shabby Chic so I figured I would give it a try.

I found this great tutorial for shabby chic here on Stampartic blog. For my card layout Sketch and stash challenge is Free choice sketch so I picked there sketch #64 for my card.

Materials used
Papers: Kaiser Craft Sweet nothings paper pad, bazzill white cardstock
Stamps: Magnolia's Mini Cupido, Mini Kissing Tilda, mini Kissing Edwin and Sweet Moon
Martha Stewart heart punch
Flowers are from WOC
Misc. Peals, Lace, Glossy accents, stickles, Crystal stems

For my images I colored with copics and Prisma markers. I distressed all the edges of my papers then used my sewing machine for the stitching. Everything except my little cupido was misted with Matte white spraypaint, even my image. For my little cupido, I applied glossy accents and stickles on his wings.

I really love the outcome and will be doing more shabby chic in the future.

I am entering my card in the following challenges

By the Cute and Girly - Love is in the air
Deep ocean - Love you
Magnolia Mania - Anything goes
Tomic - Valentines & Hearts
Papercrafting journey - Fairies or angels
Paper Sundaes - Valentines

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
