Shabby chic card with a matching box...

Hi everyone!!

Hope all are doing well. Have you taken part in our challenge yet? It's a recipe challenge set by our talented Mallika.

I'm here with an inspiration- A shabby chic card and a box. Shabby chic isn't my style. I've tried my best to make it look pretty. My inspiration comes from my pals Hussena and Pallavi who make awesome shabby chic projects with mesmerizing pastels! I'm sure they inspire all of you too...

Here is my card-

See the stitching (bad!) on the card? Doesn't it look pretty? This is the first time I used real stitching on my card. Stitching is a great addition to projects.

I have used two pattern papers  one on the base CS and one on the smaller panel.
My embellishments are flowers, leaves, lace, jute twine, pearls and pearl head pins. (you only need to use 3 embellishments as per the recipe, more are welcome)
one sentiment.

 Here is the matching box...

Do leave some love! :) See you soon!

Supplies used-
Prima's Fairy rhymes paper pad.
All the flowers, embellishments are from my stash.
There is ahuge stock of mulberry flowers at Crafters Corner...check them out.
