Happy H{ippity} Hop! Monday, May 24

For last week's Hop Challenge we had to make a card using a photo for inspiration (below).  The photo reminded me of the Shabby Chic style in decorating.  This is my "shabby chic" card.  I used an image from Regal Greetings to make the frame for the sentiment.  The lace is scrap and the ribbon from Mike's $1 bin.  The charm is made from poly shrink.  I believe it is Shrinky Dinks brand in almond.  I stamped with Burnt Umber Hybrid ink, cut out, punched a hole in the middle, shrank and then put a glass head pin through.  Close ups are after the inspiration photo.
  Thanks for looking!
