TRR Challenge #21 Shabby Chic Birthday

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel! Not only is Lenet our fab host this week but its also her birthday! Lenet has chosen this beautiful shabby photo.....

...and ask that you create a BIRTHDAY card /project using the COLOURS from the photo, plus RIBBON, LACE, ROSES and STITCHING!

Here is my card..

I used some gorgeous rose paper from Papermania, as well as papers from MME. I just love using these colours, they are so easy to work with.

I chose to use this beautiful blue Gardenia and a couple of pink cherry blossoms instead of roses, as the paper is covered in them. The sentiment is from WMS which I added stitching and pearls to. You can just about see my little bow underneath the Gardenia which is baby pink seam binding. I completed the card by adding white crochet lace to the bottom.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT cards and wish Lenet a Happy Birthday!
