Black & White Shabby Chic

I am feeling a little under the weather today. My husband is just getting rid of his cold and I think he gave it to me. I like presents and all, but he could have kept this one to himself. In any case, I wanted to share a post of a black and white card I made over the weekend.

I had never heard of Shabby Chic" until I started joining challenges. To describe these types of cards I always used "Vintage Inspired." Well regardless, I love making these types of cards. I don't use my rubber stamps often enough, so I made a point to try and use them more often.

The rubber stamps is from Hampton Art and is one of my favorites. It works great with black and white cards. Lots of layering on this one. Designer paper, doily ribbon and brads from my stash. The sentiment comes to you compliments of Created with TLC.

I think this will make a great birthday card.
