Heart Song Inspiration Challenge

Hope you all had a great weekend. It is very hot here and I can't wait for cooler weather!
So onto this weeks challenge at Heart Song Inspiration. Its your choice~~
Shabby Chic and/or pearls.
We would love for you to stop by and join us.
I'm using the Pansy Frame image. Being a flower lover this one is one of my favs!

It was water colored and cut out. I then stamped the sentiment and distressed around it.
Used gold stickles on the flower edges. The background was punched down each
side with a MS arch then embossed. I gathered some crepe paper for two rows of
ruffles at the bottom then stitched a strip of the stiped print over the edge.

I distressed a piece of the striped dp to mount the image onto. It was all foam dotted on.
The bow was made from hand dyed ribbon and attached. Lastly put the pearls on.

Supplies used: SU papers, crepe paper, SU pearls,
Heart Song image, seam binding , diagonal embossing
folder, stickles and Martha Stewart arch punch.
Entering Challenges;
Allsorts: Framed
The Corrosive: Girlie
Kenny K's Crafty Girlz: Layers
One Stitch at a Time: Bling
Designed 2 Delight: Anything Goes
Mark's Finest Papers: Emboss it

Davi, you really made a beauty with this one. Love the gorgeous image and how you ruffled the bottom. Your striped and distressed dp is just awesome. I thought it was a piece of fabric.

Stay cool!!
