Just Because




This shabby chic card is for 3 challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room - white & bright (use white &/or cream w/one other color)
Our Creative Corner - Let's Play Dress Up (take the basic sketch and dress it up in any way)
ODBD Shining Light Challenge - Wing It (include anything with wings on the card)
Since TSTR's sponsor was Webster's Pages, I just had to start with some of their gorgeous DP. This prima was the perfect shade, so had to add it to the Nestie layers. A die cut tag was cut from River Rock CS and the edges were sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. The sentiment is from Verve's new Sweet Treats set. We were also given a picture for inspiration & the crystal & shiny silver berries were translated as needing some serious bling on my card - lol! The circle Nesties imitate the dinner plate shape. Thanks for stopping by...I always appreciate your comments!
