Much Happiness

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday!  Today I've got a card to share using this week's September Week 4 VLV sketch by Janelle.  I thought the half round panel would be perfect to use a paper doily, so I pulled one out and went all shabby chic!

The stamps are from the Brighter Days set, stamped onto some old sheet music that I coated with antique mod podge , then used some sprays to fingerpaint over the little scroll.  The flower is stamped onto Blushing Bride card stock, then hand cut and layered.  I added some vintage lace trim and a few ribbons from my box of scraps.  The paper is the Peaceful collection from Authentique and I accented the polka dots with some pink bling.  At the very end, I thought it needed a little sparkle, so I sprayed what I thought was Shine Mr. Huey spray, but it ended up being opaque white.  A baby wipe got most of it, but it left kind of a dirty chalkboard effect on half of the card!  Oh well!  That's the way the crafting crumbles!  {grin}

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!

  1. Love, love, love this card. So dramatic. I can always tell when your cards are up. Don't even have to look at the creator and I know it from you. Love the way you distress your edges. I know you say you use a distressing tool, but could you please give a tutorial on your technique. I can never get my edges that distressed. Thanks in advance.

  2. What a gorgeous card Julee.

  3. Lots of Julee goodness on this card :) The polka dotted ribbon treatment is fabulous and great work with the distressing. Fabulous work as always :)

  4. Aside from the mishap it really turned out quite beautifully. Great colors and distressing.
    Hugs, Dangina

  5. Shabby chic at its finest, Julee! I actually like what happened with the opaque white...really adds to the shabby chic look! Sometimes there are happy accidents {grin}!


Thanks so much for taking the time to brighten my day with a comment! I love hearing from you.
