Shabby Thank you

A quick post for this beautiful Sunday...

While in Baltimore with Catherine, I picked up some gorgeous My Minds Eye patterned paper.  I love the feminine patterns and the soft tones in this collection.  They fit perfectly into the Shabby Chic design that I seem to be drawn to lately.  I combined the patterned paper with a label frame from the Christmas Wishes (I love versatility!) stamp set by Wplus9 and some Dearest Jane paper by PTI.  Some distressing, a rolled edge and doily all add to the overall shabby design!   

What are your favorite stamps, accessories or tools to use while creating Shabby Chic cards or layouts?  I'd love to add some to my collection!

Don't leave without checking out my Stamp for Sale page by clicking here. I will be listing on ebay by the middle of the week, so get them while you can.

Hello Maureen
Your construction of your card is beautifully done; from the Bg papers to your added script trim, the doily which is giving out so much texture, then your eye catches the twine,your framed sentiment-to the Yellow butterfly, altogether a soft shabby feel and a perfect Thank-you card.
Thank you so very much for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner I am just thrilled to view your work.
