More Chic Than Shabby

I love the shabby chic lifestyle! 
It makes me feel all warm and squishy just walking through an Anthropologie shop!  I run my hands along the silky soft quilts and smell the sweet fragrance of roses on each paper and twine wrapped soap. 
Working on shabby chic inspired greeting cards makes me feel that way too.  It gives me the cottage fix I’m looking for from time to time.  I love to see the way that a person’s eyes seem to soften and a tiny sigh escapes when holding one of my pink, glittery greetings.  That’s the feeling I want to inspire.
Stop by my Etsy shop to see all these fun, whimsical greetings, plus lots more! These are perfect for any occasion and are also great for framing (this one would make a lovely gift in a shadow box).

Birthday Girl

I recently made this birthday card for a very special 4-yr-old.  I thought the image looked just like her, so I was excited to make this unique greeting for her. 
I was also in the middle of moving, so I only had about 1/2 my scrapbook supplies on hand (how did I make it through without my goodies, you ask?  It wasn’t easy!)
I had no access to buttons, brads or ribbon, so I had to be a bit creative.  🙂 
I went a little Stickles crazy here and then embellished the card with tons of flowers and rhinestones.  The scalloped ovals and swirls in the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.
