Little Bit Shabby Chic

Good Morning Blogging Friends!
Today's card will be entered in two challenges.  Heartsong Inspirations #12 asks us to create something Shabby Chic and/or with pearls.  Shabby Chic isn't usually my style, but I do love organza bows and pearls are always fun, so I gave it a try.  I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches # 108 to layout the card.  I love using sketches.  I actually seem to get more creative with my overall design when I have a sketch to follow.  Sketches helped me get going when I first began designing cards.  I still keep a notebook of all the sketch challenges I visit - it really helps when the mojo isn't working.
The paper is from a Heidi Grace pad I found at Tuesday Morning.  I used a MS border punch and a doily that's been inked to add a little shabby.  The pearls on the card are Liquid Pearls and the ones on the flower are stick-ons.  The stamps are Hero Arts Word Fun.

Tomorrow is the Delightful Challenges post.  All the designers are using Wendy's digital patterned papers in the designs.  I've used her patterned papers several times now and I love how they coordinate perfectly with the digital stamps.  I hope you'll come back to see my design.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn

Oooo, I love the doily and all the pearls! I would never have thought of inking a doily until I saw this. Your liquid pearls are perfect. Thanks for joining us at Heart Song. So glad you play along each week. Good luck.

Very pretty card, Larelyn! I really like how you inked the edges of the doily, and all those wonderful pearls you added. I agree -- sketches are so wonderful for getting the mojo moving again! Thanks so much for sharing this at Heart Song Inspirations! :-)

Oh!! Very nice. I hadn't thought at all to use words for the 6 elements on the card. Great out of the box, I mean, circle thinking. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
