Saturated Canary Challenge #52

Hello everyone! I made this card as part of Saturated Canary's Challenge #52. You can find details about the challenge here:

The challenge was to create a card using a Saturated Canary image or rubber stamp in the "Shabby Chic" style. I am not sure if this is totally shabby chic or not. 

I used Saturated Canary's "Orchard Love" and you can purchase her here:

I colored "Orchard Love" with Spectrum Noir Markers and added a tiny bit of Glossy Accents 
to her eyes. 

I used several papers from My Minds Eye and I distressed all of them using Craftsmart Ink in Chocolate Brown. I cut scalloped ovals using Cricut's Elegant Edges cartridge and distressed them as well.  The buttons were created with an EK Success Button Punch and were stitched on using a little DMC thread.  I put each button on a tiny bit of dimensional adhesive tape to make them pop. 

The sentiment was created using a little $1 Alphabet Rubber Stamp Set from Michaels. I cut a bunch of little squares, stamped a letter on each square, distressed the edges of all of them, and then arranged them in a little line on the card.  

I added a little May Arts ribbon ("Crochet Trim" I believe) and added pearls. 

Thank you for stopping by!
