 Hi all, Today I'm writing about a yummy little card where I used my favorite Flourishes stamp set, Cherry Blossoms. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #165.
I pulled out all my creative stops with this one and tried to create something kinda shabby chic.

Shabby is usually not my style but I felt it would work well with the "feel" I wanted on this card and I am delighted with it. I pulled out my Tim Holtz edge thingy (the name escapes me) which i usually don't like. But when I sew next to it, I like it better!

 Did you notice the little heart charm? So cute, I think it's Bead Landing brand. I dug out some MME paper with an Eiffel tower on it so I could play in this week's Papercraft Star challenge "French". I was planning on using a "Merci" sentiment but I have enough thank you cards in my stash so I went with the sentiment from the same stamp set mentioned above. It's a beautiful saying and can be appropriate for many different uses.
I just love the color combo and I'm getting a little better at shading with my copics. I have a long way to go though. Thanks for looking everyone. Have a great day!
Hugs, Kim
