A Shabby Chic Christmas Card

The MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge has started back and this week we are inspired by Shabby Chic Bedrooms:



After seeing these pictures, I want to redo my bedroom! I love them all, but I was inspired by the third one - all that lace and the pink really captured my imagination.


I used the Create with Pine Boughs set (still my favorite MFP stamp set ever).

Hugz!!!

  2. I think my bedroom is in need of a makeover after seeing those gorgeous photographs Nancy- unfortunately it will have to join the queue behind the bathroom!
    Your card is a perfect example of shabby chic, such lovely soft papers and pretty lace.

  6. A really pretty Shabby Chick card. I can definitely tell which picture inspired you. I like that you used this for a Christmas card, I like using colors other than the normal red and green.

  7. Nancy,
    I really like shabby chic, but just have to learn how to work that vein. Your colors on your beautiful card are wonderful and the lace is lovely and elegant.

  10. What a wonderful shabby chic card patterned after that bedroom! I'd choose the purple one in the center - and look how the outdoors have come right indoors where you sleep! How dreamy is that!

  14. Anything with beautiful lace always gets my attention. And this is just lovely with the vintage shade on that distressed background. The simplicity of the ornament is perfect with the other elements of this card's design. Well done. I'm off to look at the earlier post, that I just glimpsed some gorgeous flowers as the current post scrolled up. Happy New Year, TFS & hope it will be a warmer weekend in your area. Brrrr! At least we had sunshine - and it was warmer today (relatively speaking!). Hugs

LOL) your card is just lovely...and would you believe that last night two of my favorite crafty friends came to visit...and we finally got to exchange Christmas presents...and in Kathi's package...was a lot of beautiful laces...and one just like the one you used! (Thanks for the inspiration!)

  17. Such an unusual Christmas card. I like the softness to it and the candle behind the card looks perfect for the picture.
