Shabby Thank You (ESS #118, Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: Comfy Cozy)

Tonight's card is based on the sketch below from Eat Sleep Stamp and inspired by the picture below from the  Comfy Cozy Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World.  The stamps are from PTI, the patterned paper is from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop collection, the die is Nestabilities, and the border punch is Martha Stewart.  The metal thank you is from Making Memories and is inspired by the iron bed frame.  I chose a kraft card and sponged white ink on the edges to resemble the tan walls and the distressed mantle.  The blue flower paper matches the rug and the red paper reminds me of the toile in some of the pillows.  I chose to replicate the rose pillow and the french blue pillows on my stamped white couch.  I attempted a shabby chic card.  I think it still needs a little work to really be shabby chic, but I like it anyway.  I hope you do too!  Happy Crafting!
