Anyway! Here's a Shabby Chic one for you today. Love how this turned out! I've been missing my "Shabby Chic self" lately, so I decided to pull out the daubers and the linen stamp and go at it.
I got the idea to put something in the yoga chick's hands from Mary Jo (<--GENIUS!!), so I decided to do the tulip from Eggstra-Special Easter and make this a Thank You card. I watercolored the image with my waterbrush & reinkers, and then sponged and distressed the edges.
The patterned paper is the Felicity Collection by Scribble Scrabble....love those colors!! You can't see it, but the soft sky panel is stamped tone on tone with the "Thank you" background stamp from Behind the Scenes. Both panels are stamped and sponged with Linen & Cocoa, then stitched freely around the edges. To finish it off, I tied my polka dot ribbon around and threaded it through the button for fun. Then I stamped the word "Thanks" in Chocolate Craft ink in the bottom right corner.
So I'm going to an Idol watch party tomorrow night with Josh & the boys. Don't forget to watch and vote!! Or just vote!! :) I'll report tomorrow night (maybe even with some pics! *wink*).
