Shabby Sweetness

I have been a busy girl this week between homeschooling, cooking and cleaning, crafting and blogging.  But it's all SO much fun.  I sat down late last night and made this shabby sweet little card.  I had to literally tell myself, "step away from the hot glue gun, and go to bed".  Sometimes I forget how late it is.
This card uses two different October Afternoon polka dot patterned papers, a Melissa Frances journal spot, a Happy Birthday stamped sentiment from My Craft Spot and a Hurray For You stamped sentiment from Paper Sweeties, some little pearl accents, several paper flowers, some seam binding (also from Paper Sweeties) some jute, acrylic paint on the edges, and a Kraft Notecard from The Kraft Outlet.
I'm sharing this card in these challenges:
Catered Crop - Polka Dot/Recipe Swap sponsored by Paper Sweeties, and my card uses Paper Sweeties seam binding and sentiment stamp.
