Shabby Just for You

Who doesn't love roses - I know I do, I love the way they look and the perfume that some of them have is divine - a fragrance that just cannot be captured in a bottle!

This gorgeous image is another one from 'The Graphics Fairy' - they have some gorgeous fee images

  It has been mounted onto embossed Card stock using Spellbinders Labels Eight Die, the filigree on either side is from the Ironworks Motif Die, as this is a circle, I have cut down each edge and slipped it under the Labels Eight Die, creating a filigree frame.  I cut all Dies with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

The sentiment is from Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, illustrated by Nina Brackett for Layers of Color.

Lace, flowers and buttons topped with pearls have been layered onto a border from the Spellbinders Floral Accent Die.

The DP is from Stampin' UP! and has been debossed with the SU Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Ann's - Bold & Bright
Fairy Tale - Spring
Polkadoodle - Summer Fever
Poodles Parlour -  Mothers' Day / Female Card
