Shabby Chic Cupcake Sketch

Happy Tuesday All!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. Things have been very busy at our house. Catching up after vacation, doing house work and laundry, running errands, etc...I feel like I haven't stamped in forever! I did make some time today though.

I found the sketch on Cupcake Craft Challenge and paired it with the theme of Shabby/Vintage over at Stamp with Fun. And this is the outcome...

I received this beautiful image from my good friend Marcea. We traded images a little while back and this was just one of many I received from her. Thank you Marcea! :)

I colored the image with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. Her wings have been dusted with Elmer's glitter glue.

The papers are all SU! including the new Parisian Breeze DSP. I just love this paper, it's not only beautiful but it's also textured! To create the shabby chic details, I distressed the paper edges, made some tears, and then stitched it to another piece of DSP which was also distressed. The accents are a Taffeta and lace ribbons and Prima flowers paired with felt flowers and paper roses. I got the pretty vintage frame at a scrapbook convention this past weekend.

Thanks for popping on over today. Don't forget to enter for your chance to win my Birthday Blog Candy prize! Have a great afternoon, happy stamping! :)

ETA: I plan to give this card to a friend who is recovering from a recent surgery, so this card also fits the Whiff of Joy friendship challenge. :)
