Shabby Chic Bird (CAS Design)

Theres a challenge over at SCS to make a Shabby Chic card using the Clean and Simple Design...I really had to think this about this combination...While Shabby Chic cards are usually made using several elements on the card I just narrowed them down but still kept what I see in a Shabby Chic Style...The only thing I had that reminded me of Shabby Chic was this SU Bird Punch since birds and birdcages are usually a part of a room design in a Shabby Chic room and alot of times they are painted white or cream so my bird is white, Pink was the color I chose for the mat since its a popular shabby color and gingham on the wing for pattern, I distressed my paper using scissors to give the worn look that is so popular in the shabby chic design...I used lots of white which I see alot in shabby chic rooms or creams...I used texture by using my cuttlebug to emboss the swiss dots and some bling was added for shine to the birds eye...and last I added fabric by using the satin ribbon to the top of the card...I was so wanting to do a chandelier in white ink on pink with bling but didnt have what I needed for it..Maybe one day I will try that! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Supplies: SU Bird Punch, CB Swiss Dots, MM and Halcraft Papers, Pop Dots, Bling and Ribbon
