Shabby Chic Anniversary

Hello!  I've got an anniversary card to show you today, but this one is not for my hubby (our anniversary was yesterday).  It's going to the boutique for sale, hoping to attract a customer who loves the shabby chic style.


I used a beautiful frame and sentiment from Vintage Frames, by Inspired By Stamping.  This set is free with a $50 purchase during the month of October, to celebrate IBS's anniversary.  Click HERE for all the details.



I absolutely love the free stamp sets that IBS-owner Joanna is offering this month.  Love, love, love!  I've always liked ornate frames, and, well, I swoon over hydrangeas.  :-)

Tomorrow I'll be back with a bunch of creations to show for the IBS October release party!  Just hear those sleigh bells ring-a-ling, jing-jing-jingling, too.....



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Vintage Frames - Inspired By Stamping
Paper: white - PTI; Very Vanilla - SU; London Market - Pink Paislee
Ink: Crumb Cake - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: striped ribbon - SU
Other: doily - Wilton; white flower - IBS; heart die cut - K & Co.; pearl; champagne stick pin - Jenni Bowlin

Ooh, this is a beauty, Colleen. It is sure to impress a vintage lover. I adore that ribbon and the stick pins. Really, I love everything thing you used on this card. A WINNER!!

Glad you got to go to a HB and enjoyed it. Mine is about 12 minutes from my house...yep, it is timed. Ha

I'm sorry I forget to say Happy Anniversary yesterday when I commented on your card for your mom. I guess I was still thinking about your Hawaii photos. :-)
