I have used Papermill linen card as the base and cut the papers with The Vintage Box die. I have also used a Lawn fawn stitched circle die for layering . The flowers were made using Magnolia Peony Doohickey die and more dies from the Vintage box with stamens in the center. The butterflies and tiny cards are made from the Vintage Box too from Magnolia . The shaker part was made using the We R Memory Keepers fuse tool with some pastel sequins from Amazon and a sprinkle of prima glitter. For the shabby chic element I have added touches of white gesso around the edges of my embellishments and card base .
