An attempt at shabby chic

Hi Friends..Hope you all are doing good ..:)
Today I took an attempt at shabby chic but I am still unsure it falls under shabby chic or some colors came out to be pretty loud..:( I would appreciate if someone clarifies..:))
I got to know how tough it is to make a shabby card .. at least for me
Used flower punch to create the layered paper flower alongside the sentiment. Used corrugated paper for the background and pattern papers to border the central area as well as side-lines.

Hello Honey-bunny card;)

Hi my crafty friends..:)..
After a long day in office I was all set to make a card & finally succeeded in making one!!..
In my recent creations I was resisting myself hard from putting in too much colors into them..:P..Finally got a chance to make a colorful one!..Thanks to Lulupu Challenge #9 - Splash of colors..:)...I have a lovely stock of pattern papers and although It hurt a lot to pierce and punch them :(..I didn't want to lose the chance to enter in The ItsyBitsy Pattern Paper Challenge for the second time :P..So had to use them :P

Some crafty steps used:
1.(To the left most side of the card)I punched out the flowers from the pattern paper and again pasted the crumpled punched out flowers in the spaces in the pattern paper created due to punching.It gives it a 3-D look.Pasted alternate colored buttons at the centers.
2.(Right most upper corner flower)Punched out various flower shapes from another pattern paper and layered them to create a paper flower.
3.The flowers and the leaves at the center are also punched out from different pattern papers and mounted on another smooth pink dotted pattern paper.
4.Used 3-D Letter stickers to create the sentiments :)

One year Happily Ever after!!!

Hi to all...:)I made this custom greeting card for one of my customers today..:)..

He wanted the card to be made for his anniversary..

The frame among the leaves has to be left empty for his hand written words..If you lift the flap,then there is another frame for the couple's photo..

On the card base, there is a mini-card with a cute anniversary Co-ordinate from ItsyBitsy and Inside is a lovely Plum colored flower from Crafter's Corner.

The vibrant pattern paper and the leaf punches are also from ItsyBitsy Store..:)

After a long time I used some quilling on my card..Painted the central flower and placed a small heart shaped stone in the center of it..

So, I am again back to my colorful form with this card..hehe..:P

Here are the snapshots..!!!
