Thinking of You

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog! I went frilly on my card today. I love shabby chic and frilly but somehow I don't always accomplish that look. It was fun making this frilly card today. I have come to realize that the papers you use really make a difference with the frilly look.

I used several dies on this card. I cut the leaves using the Fresh Foliage die from Memory Box. The birdcage is a Marianne die and the flower was cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. I also used a die from Tim Holtz's Alterations Collection on the background at top left of the card. Pink trim was used on the bottom of the birdcage and crocheted ribbon was used for the bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
