Just sharing

Hello Friends, This is going to be a really quick post as I really have to let my arm rest. I had originally created this card for a challenge but because of my going slower than usual, I didn't finish it in time to add it to the challenge. SO, I hope you enjoy it. I did have fun making it as it was the first thing created in almost 2 weeks. I was starting to have serious withdrawals, LOL! So, Enjoy and I will see you all real soon!!

Supplies used:
so saffron,wild wasabi,choc. chip and white smooth card stock,  sentiment Gina K "Treasure to me" in     choc. chip ink  and flowers by recollections from Michael's.

Lately I have been into the Vintage,shabby chic look of things so when I started to make this I knew exactly where I was going with it. To start things off, I used cardboard, Yes, your average cardboard box and ran it through my Big kick with my Stampin Up! Top Note die cut. I then tore off the top layer of the card board.
I mixed some acrylic white opalescent pain with a pink re inker and then sponged some of the mix all over the top note piece. I put that aside and went to work on some of the other items I wanted to add to the "Top Note" I used my scallop heart nestie and die cut a heart in some DP and then embellished the heart in pink bling. I also added some Brown prima flowers and added some Distress stickles to the flowers. I also added some ivory lace and a die c…
