Vintage/Shabby Chic

Good afternoon everyone. I have not posted for a few days. It's half term and the house is in upheaval. My 11 year old son is no problem, but when you add his sister to the mix who is almost 21 and should know better the fireworks fly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right today I am going to share a card that I have been carrying around in my head since the weekend and have only just managed produce today!

I have been at the DCWV papers again. I cant resist the blackcurrant stack. The image is princess magnolia. She's been stuck in the draw for ages so needed an airing. The frame I cut with my Cricut from grunge paper and then crackled with picket fence. All of the paper edges have been distressed.   

The word adore has been cut from black Bazzil card using the Cricut and the home decore cartridge.
 I love the ruffled ribbon which is from Tim Holtz as is the fabric rose. I just added a sparkly brad for effect. The Buckle I bought from the last Alexandria palace craft show in April.
