Shabby Tea Room Chipboard Challenge

I think my first love when it comes to style is definitely "Shabby Chic"!  Although I love to experiment with other styles I always come back to the vintage, shabby, carefree style of Shabby Chic!  The Shabby Tea Room has become one of my favorite blog/challenge websites because of this love!  This week at TSTR is week #9 and it is a chipboard challenge.  Lord knows I have my share of chipboard but to pick only one for a card was a challenge in itself!  I settled on a beautiful little butterfly from Tattered Angels and sprayed it with pink glimmer mist for some added shine.  You can't go wrong with Prima flowers so I embellished the butterfly with 2 mini roses and placed one large glittered rose on top!  The stick pins from Maya Road have also been a favorite of mine lately and they remind me of something I might have found in my grandmother's attic if I had the chance to look!  I also love the combination of the pink color with the kraft paper.  I got the new Damask stamp set from Papertrey Ink yesterday so I stamped the pattern on to some Sweet Blush cardstock from PTI as well.  I am very happy with how the card came out and I am entering it in TSTR this week and 2 other challenges:
The City Crafter Challenge Blog - week # 4 colors challenge
Die Cut Dreams - challenge #47 Shabby Chic (How Appropriate!)
That's all for now, have a great day and do something creative today!
