A Little Something Different

Happy Saturday Morning!!

Its one of the most beautiful mornings here today..the birds are chirping, the sun is shining and the warmth of the last of summer days just makes me smile! These are the days of summer that I truly enjoy..ones that encourage you to relax, take things slow and enjoy what's around you! Speaking of which, do you know that feeling you get when you sit down to create something and everything just seems to work? Everything falls into place and you just sit back and smile? My card today is exactly that kind of project! I've been struggling the last little while, trying to find my "style", so to speak. Something that expresses what's in my mind out on paper and something that just speaks to me..
I've always loved the look of vintage, shabby-chic..but admired it from afar as I had no idea where to begin! Most shabby-chic cards have layers that draw you in and its intimidating to me and therefore most of my cards always seemed just a little too one dimensional. But then I found artists that inspire me, such as Melissa Phillips. Everything she creates is beautiful and inspiring and if you have..oh say a whole day, sit down to her blog and lose yourself in her creations! I strongly encourage it :)
So, without further hesitation..here is my first attempt at something a little more shabby-chic..
I finally took out my Making Memories' Chloe's Closet collection..which I loved the very first time I saw it..but had no idea what I was going to make with it!! Everything you see on here is MM, minus the orange gems from Kaiser Crafts..
Sure, this card is a little more "Spring-like", but I don't care.. I just love it to pieces!!
For the flower, I layers a cardstock sticker with 3 different sizes of Chloe's Closet florals and then topped it off with a lemon MM button and PTI Rustic Jute Twine. And to finish it off I added 3 more buttons..just because I could :)
So..what do you think? I'd love for you to leave me a comment below and tell me your thoughts!!
Otherwise, enjoy your weekend everyone and take care!!
Happy Crafting!
