Feeling A Little Bit "Krafty and Shabby Chic" Today!!

How is YOUR day going???
I am getting ready to head out tomorrow for a few days
so am trying to work on a few things before I go..... 


I created these very sparke-ly Roses yesterday....
let them dry overnight and just had to use them today.....
I have to admit I am "sort of" addicted to the Cheery Lynn Designs "Gardenia Strip"....
it makes the most easy and gorgeous Roses!!!

I "built" my Roses using a SU paper and added "Tropical Tangerine" Stickles
however, I think I got a bit carried away with the Stickles...lol!!

  
The base of my card is "KRAFT" card stock...
which I embossed before adding all the other details!!
I used Cheery Lynn Designs Olive Branch die and Margarita Border
and a bit of lovely twill ribbon from Paper Sweeties
The papers are from Classy Cards 'n Such and are Prima Zephyr
The vintage image is from Crafty Secrets
to finish I added the little heart lock..it's a Prima, too
and a few MS mint pearls....

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs .... Keep It Krafty
and
The Kraft Journal .... Shabby Chic
and
Divas By Design .... 3 or More Layers
and
Craft Your Passion .... 3 or MOre Embellishments

Wow Diane, Your flowers are stunning and beautifully made. I find I tend to get carried away with Stickles too when I start using it on a project, but then again a girl can't have too much sparkle in her life. Thanks for joining in the challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs and Good Luck.
