Shabby Chic So Grateful Card


Hi Friends! Happy Sunday! I created this shabby chic card this afternoon. I worked on crocheting a motif yesterday and decided to see how it would look on my card. I bought a book with different crochet motif designs and I liked this one because it looks like a flower. You can't really tell how it looks because I layered it with the silk flowers and smaller crochet flowers.

I found a scrap piece with buttons attached to the ric rac and decided to add it to my card. I believe I created it to use on a different card but decided not to use it. I like finding pieces that I created and set aside. . .sometimes it may not work for one design but works perfectly with another. I do that often. . .so I have a lot of scrap pieces and embellishments that I put together but don't end up using. It's sometimes feel like I found a treasure when I finally do find use for them. . .hehe!


I did a bit of sewing on my card. . .I decided to sew stitches on to the heart and around the card. Anyway. . .that's about it for today! Hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday!
