Shabby Chic Love

I am back !! Hope you all are doing good !!
These days I am working on my new's still not complete yet. Swirls and dots are my favourite pattern. Do tell me what's yours ??
Well today I am sharing a shabby chic love card with you all. This is my first actual try on this style of cardmaking. It took me 3 days to complete it. I never make cards in installments. But due to time constraints, it took so long. Anyways I am happy with the outcome. Take a look -

I have used three pattern papers in this card. The edges of base paper is distressed with scissor. I was trying to make pleated ribbon for long and finally implemented in this card. It's not perfect yet. The background of tag is made from chalk colours.The handdrawn bird is fussy cut and popped using foam tape. For the first time, I have recycled corrugated sheet from a packaging box. It is cut using Itsy Bitsy thin cut heart die.

Supplies Used -
Cardstock - Local buy
PP - Glitz bought from CCC
Die - MFT bought from CCC
Ribbon ,Pearls- Local buy
Rose flower - Prize from Imaginations
Pink Flowers - Itsy Bitsy
Stamp - Imaginisce for cage &Tim Holtz for flourishes
Ink - Memento black dye ink
Chalk Colours for tag background
