Shabby chic birthday

Hey, hey! Two cards in a row, Not something that happens often on my blog. lol But I had some free time and decided to use it for another blog post. Doesn't happen too often I have some extra free time on my fands these days so I am trying to make the best with it when "it comes around". And to be honest, I couldn't wait to share this card with you. I was so pleased with how it turned out - even though it's not my usual "cute style". I hope you will like it!

It was really fun to make a card without a coloured image for a change. But also challenging, as I had to fill that empty space some other way. So I used a lot of different die cuts from Memory box, Sizzix, Cheery Lynn ... and some gorgeous frowers from I am roses. I made the butterflies myself using the mod podge molds and mod melts. I finished the card with some lace, a metal key charm, crystal and tiny pearls. Sentiment is a stamp from Whimsy stamps. It's hard to see in the picture, but the white frame around the sentiment was first painted with gesso and then covered with crackle accents. Papers are from Maja Design.
