Shabby Chic Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Sweetktea!
Since I know Sweetktea likes shabby chic, I new exactly which papers I wanted to use. The papers are Anna Griffin...aren't they sweet? I got the (provo craft) wooden letter "K" from Craft Warehouse, "painted" it white using white Craft Ink. After it dried*, I stamped the weathered stamp using Bashful Blue ink. The to finish it off I tied a gingham bow and added Prima flowers and a button.
*(Note, the craft ink took forever to dry. Since I needed to get the card in the mail, I nuked it in the micro for 1 minute and it did the trick.)

Thank you Alyssa for my beautiful card! It's totally me to a 'T'!
I am going to put it up in my craft room because I like looking at it. Thanks for thinking of me and making me such a lovely card. When I opened it up I was like, oh this is so me, it's so shabby chic! Perfection! I was wondering how you got that letter K to be crackled like that. I was trying to figure it out. Now, the mystery is solve. How much is that crackle stamp, how novel?!
Hope your weekend is going great with all the festivities! My mom took me out this morning for a suprise Hot towel Lavender massage. What a blessing that was! It was at this place in Sunnyside called Haven of rest Day Spa. It is run by two Christian ladies. They are offering a Candy Cane pedicure right now for the holidays. I might have to save up my pennies to treat myself later.

Thanks again Alyssa for my simply sweet shabby chic card! It made my day!

I'm so glad you like it. I had lots of fun making it for you. Your lavender massage sounds wonderful. I'm exhausted now that Natalie's party is over and could really use a massage...what a treat!
