Shabby in Blue

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  I hope you are all having a lovely day.  
It's a beautiful day here in Adelaide.  A little bit cool, which suits me to a tee, and beautifully sunny.   It is Autumn though, so that could change at the drop of a hat.  In the meantime, I will simply make the most of it.
I have made another step card that I'd like to share with you.  

 The papers used are Kaisercraft's Hidden Treasure.   The only ones I have actually cut are the doily, which was cut in half and placed diagonally across opposite corners, and the base paper.  The rest have simply been torn to the sizes I wanted.  It gives them a wonderful distressed edge and a lovely shabby look.  
This lovely little flower is a gardenia which is available from Meg's Garden as are the copper leaves.

This chipboard piece is from Little Birdie .  I simply painted it with gesso and, when dry, randomly applied some Helmar glue and sprinkled clear glitter over it.  
The papers were curled using a Kaisercraft Tool and I also wrapped some different sized twines around the bottom and tied it in a bow.
I fully lined the inside with paper from the same collection and decided to place some contrasting strips on the stand for some extra strength.
Just a closie showing the layers.
I really love this paper, especially the one with the tiny floral pattern.  Took a while for me to actually use it and now it's gone.  Ah well, I hope whoever gets this card will appreciate the sacrifice.  hehe!!

Thank you so much for visiting and for any comment you might leave.  I really do appreciate you taking the time.
Please take care and God Bless.
