The Shabby Tea Room - Week #4!

This week's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room - Week #4 is called 'Embrace the White' and we are being challenged to create a card or project with white or ivory and only one other subtle color. I decided to make a Mother's Day card for this challenge and put my usual vintage spin on it!
I used Very Vanilla and Soft Suede CS with a couple pieces of shimmery patterned paper from DCWV. I spritzed the paper doilie, scalloped circle punched out of vintage sheet music paper, the paper flowers and leaves with Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels to give them a bit of ageing and shimmer. The vellum butterfly was cut with SU's embosslit and the stamped 'M' is from Jane's Typed Alphabet set. The Shabby Vintage Winter White Seam Binding came from my Etsy shop, trinket pin from Maya Road and then some scrap trims from my baskets.
