ODBDSLC204 Shabby Chic Inspiration

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to use one of these photos for inspiration.  Join us here for all of the details.

I was very tempted by the lilacs, but I recently created a lilac card and wanted to go with the green and yellow.

The floral rug inspired my background paper and I added some lace for the country feel of the photo.

ODBD Stamps Used: Bird
Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, embossing folder,  foam tape, seam binding ribbon, copic markers, lace.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.


  1. Oh, DJ, I was wondering about that! I thought about how many lilacs we would have (smile). I just love your card and how wonderfully it reflects the other photo! Beautiful idea about the floral rug, and I just love this sweet bird! Another beauty, sweet friend! Hugs!

  2. DJ, this is a beautiful card! So summery and fun! I love that you went with the green and yellow. I especially like that you embossed the patterned paper. Hope you have a blessed day!
