Restoration Shabby

Shabby as all heck :) I wanted to go really shabby on this card, and I think I did that.
 I used Crate Paper's Restoration paper. Love it! I've had it for awhile, but I've hardly used it. 
The doily is sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper, then Shabby Shutters around the edge.
I made the little flower out of white crepe paper. I cut a piece lengthwise in half. I then folded that in half lengthwise. I stitched right at the fold with a running stitch. Next I colored the whole strip with a couple of Copics. I pulled the thread to gather the crepe paper. It curls up on itself, forming a flower. I put a stitch in it to hold it together, then sewed a button on it. I thought it turned out so cute ;)
The ribbon was white seam binding colored with Vintage Pink Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
The butterfly was heat embossed with Zing Embossing Powder, cut out, and mounted with glue dots. 
Thanks for stopping in! 
Have a phenomenal day!
