Soft and Shabby chic !

Hi Friends,
Looks like this new year, I am on a roll :)  This is my 3rd post in this week, which is quiet an record for me :) This time the card I am sharing is inspired by the oh so 'Gorgeous picture' at the Shabby Tea Room and the sketch from Mojo Monday. So, here's a look at my card :                                                                    
And, a close-up of the flowers :                                                        
I have followed the inspiration picture for the colors and the roses on my card. And, the bird-cage has been fussy-cut from a beautiful Pink Paislee pattern paper and popped on my card-base using foam dots! The flowers and the small rose-buds are all handmade, I have used gesso on the pattern paper to lighten the colors and give the shabby chic feel.

Supplies used :-
Base Cardstock - Campap.
Pattern Papers -Pink Paislee and Graphic 45 - ( RAK from Piali ).
Dies : Spellbinder's Rose Creation's Die, Spellbinder's Leaf Foliage dies, Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border, Simon Says Stamp Feather die-cuts, Provocraft/Cuttlebug Small Tags - ( RAK from Neha ).
Stamps - Inspired by Stamping Creative Tags set.
Inks :
Distress Inks -Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.
Distress Stain - Mowed Lawn.
Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly Punch cut-outs, Seam-Binding Ribbon, Pearls.


Challenges Entered :
The Shabby Tea Room -Photo Inspiration. ( Made it to Top 3 )
Mojo Monday -Sketch
Really Reasonable Ribbon -Pink and Ribbon.
Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery - Used Creative Tags set for the sentiment.
