Shabby Chic #3

Hi! Valentine's Day is right around the corner! I want to show you a shabby chic Valentine I made using scraps from my stash.

I started with the heart frame that I found in my stash of images. The heart was made by stamping with peg stamps. I stamped the Sparkle N Sprinkle birds and colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I fussy cut the heart using decorative scissors. All of the rest of the pieces, swirls, borders, ribbon, pearls and buttons also came from my stash and were added as embellishments. I used Tim Holtz's distress tool to rough up the edges of the pink patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a very Happy Valentine's Day!
