It's The Little Things

Hi everyone! I am back with a card I have just made for The Shabby Tea Room Summer Cottage Challenge. You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the COLORS from the photo and INCLUDE DISTRESSING/SHABBY ELEMENTS plus a TITLE/SENTIMENT!

For this card, I used digital patterned papers by Adrienne Looman. I have had my eye on this collection for a little while and downloaded it and some of the embellishments. I just love the shabby chic/vintage feel from this range. I distressed and inked the patterned papers and sewed around the edge of my main paper. For the other paper layers, I inked to create the vintage look.

I printed an embellishment from the digital kit and stamped my sentiment onto it. At work at the moment we have been discussing just how busy we all are and seem to forget about the little things. We have been saying how must take time to smell the flowers!
I die cut a flourish, added flowers and die cut a butterfly. Am loving using wax paper with intricate dies, it really is like magic!

Well I hope that you too will take the time to smell the flowers!
