Rue Des Fleurs

Hi Stampers

Opener
I love the shabby chic look.  I was wondering where the term came from and looked it up on Wikipedia: 

Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, minimalistic, and feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from regular vintage decor; hence the "chic" in the name.

Since I didn't distress the edges, I guess you could call this simple or faux "Shabby Chic"! (LOL)   By now you've probably seen the Rue des Fleurs Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini.  I love, love all the images in that stamp set.   On today's card, I used the pen and sentiment from that stamp set. 

The paper is called Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper and it's full of eclectic designs.  Coordinating colors are Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delights, Very Vanilla and Whisper White.

Thanks for stopping by today
