Bits and Bobs #8

Hi Everyone! I am back with another bits and bobs card. I have been wanting to try my hand at making shabby chic cards lately, so I made one using some old things in my stash and this is what I came up with.

First I found this bunny I had stamped on lavender card stock a few years back for an Easter card, but I never used it. I fussy cut him to add behind the flower that I had stamped some time ago on some purple patterned paper. Actually I had stamped several flowers, so I fussy cut two and layered them to make one fluffy flower. Purple pearls were added to the center. I used a background that had been stamped with a script background stamp. I made a frilly frame using an old, but a very favorite, Martha Stewart punch. Then I added an old piece of ribbon for a bow, a swirl ( Spellbinders die ) that I had cut out long ago and leaves I found in a package. I am loving looking through all my old things and making something new!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
