Waltzingmouse August Waltz

I am playing along with the Waltzingmouse August waltz.  The theme was to make a shabby chic/vintage style card.  When I think of that style, distressing, creams, pinks, reds, and muted green/blueish colors come to mind.  I used some Melissa Frances paper that I recently picked up, which is always so shabby chic!  Paired it with some ivory card stock, lace, polka dotted satin ribbon and my lovely Waltzingmouse stamps.  I inked the edges of the card stock to give it an aged look.  I cut/embossed the Spellbinders S4-301 Labels Sixteen Nestabilities, then stamped the images onto it.  Make sure to visit the Waltzingmouse forum to see the list of participants!

Materials Used:
Waltzingmouse Stamps
Spellbinders Labels Sixteen Nestabilities
Ivory Card stock
PTI ribbon
pink button
twine
Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen pattern paper
corner rounder
palette ink

total proof you don't need a bajillion layers and big poofy bows for vintage/shabby chic. This is absolutely beautiful -- love the bright pink mixed with the muted blue (or is it green?) and the touch of lace...lovely!!
