Shabby Love

Here is another card I put together today. Boy I am on a roll! I am not a huge football fan so while the boys are enjoying there sports, I am enjoying mine..:)  I really wanted to try my hand at a romantic shabby chic vintage feel, I think it came out great. I created this circle easel card using my nestabilities dies. The background doilie actually looks like lace, I colored it with Tim Holtz distress ink in tattered rose and sprayed some glimmer mist on. The beautiful Victorian image is actually a cut out that comes included in the stack. I think it worked excellent with the feel I was going for. The sentiment really gives this image a story. The first time they met maybe. I just love it. Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoy this card, stay crafty.
