Eccl. 3:1

Moving right along this morning, I am posting a card that is a little different for me.  Even though I love the Shabby Chic look, I don't make them alot.  I love adding elements to my cards, but sometimes I think they look too cluttered.  This card turned out perfectly.

The image is called Shabby Chic Birdhouse and is from Beccy Muir. I printed it off on Cryogen White card stock and  I used my new Chromatix pens to add color to the image.  I also highlighted some of the flowers and leaves with a white gel pen.  I never thought of doing that until I happened to see a card made by Jenn Leeflang. I have been following her work since I first saw it on The Outlawz.  She is one talented lady.  Thanks for the tip Jen.  I made this one 6x6 card using a white card base from Colorbok.  I used Mint Green, Olive and Pink card stocks from Recollections as mats.   The DP is a freebie from Cardmakers Magazine.  All of the flowers are from my stash and I get them at AC Moore.  I added some white pearls from Queen and Co. and the sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.

Thanks for stoppin' in this morning.  I hope you like this card.  God bless y'all.
