Shabby Chic with Polkadoodles

I had such fun using the wonderful papers from the Nordic Winter Picknix 3 collection for this card.   I traced the flowers from the kit and cut on plain papers to make the layered flower and added some stitching and gold embossing with stencilling for some added detail.     I even pulled out my distressing machine and made some noise on those card edges and added distress ink to all my edges and little pearls hidden around the card.

I think what I liked best about making this card was searching among the kit and using elements in a way that suited my chosen theme.   Little hidden swirls and leaves from within the pack that I may of not seen before now jump off my page.  It certainly pays to look further in the kits to see what lays within.
