Little, Simply Shabby chic

Hello Monday!!!
How is your weather??
It is wet~wet~wet here!
I have been spending the rainy days in my creative room
working away on DT projects...
I need to do that...I have been so neglectful of my creative room lately!
Must be the weather and time of year and lack of!

 Today I have a little shabby chic simple card to show you!
Very recently Crafty Secrets released a beautiful set
of digital papers called Birds & Blooms papers.
Every single one of these papers I absolutely love!!

The design you see in this card is all one paper...
can you believe it??
I printed it twice in a 4 x 6 size.
The second print I fussy cut the flowers and the bird and popped them up!

I added a piece of lace trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon
and my last snippet of blush hand dyed seam binding ribbon.
The little wood house (birdhouse) I painted with vintage mint silks acrylic glaze

A pearl flourish and a couple of flowers 
from my stash were added to complete my card!

This will be a cute little card to tuck inside a gift bag.

Head on over to Crafty Secrets and check out not only our blog,
but the online store, too.
