A Mother's Day card

Hey there! I am back with a Mother's Day card. I am determined to use what I have because my supplies are out of control. It's a terrible addiction wanting to buy new supplies every week. Ughh! The companies are pumping out fantastic new lines and I need them. I mean really need them. Or so I convinced myself. LOL! So tonight I sat down and pulled out a set my friend Pam sent me. It's the Chatterbox Artsy.licious line which is beautiful and how I never bought it I shall not know. It's shabby chic with elegance. Which seemed fitting for The Shabby Chic Tea Room challenge which is to find inspiration in this picture.

My inspiration: the quilt's stripes and florals.
I stitched a tad and distressed the edges with Sahara Sand ink to give a "homey" feeling. I sprayed the entire card with TA's Old Lace to give some glimmer.
Thanks for stopping by!
