CAS Shabby Chic

DSCF7860

This is a quick post---Mondays always seem to be a busy day for me, good thing the CAS challenge is on Mondays!!  Today’s is to do a shabby chic card.  This doesn’t usually translate into clean and simple for me, but I tried my best:

My flower is made from sponged vellum; you can find Corie’s tutorial here, The leaves are sponged as well, and cut freehand.  This is also for the Our Daily Bread Designs SLC13, which is to use flowers.  I stamped a portion of the verse on the bottom, then masked it and stamped the rest inside. A little gold-embossed flourish adds a little zing!  Everything was sponged with Close to Cocoa:
