Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Shabby Chic

Hi All!
Good morning everyone, it's my turn to share my Sweet StampinDesign Team card with you or in this case a plaque. The theme this week is 'Shabby Chic' and you can make whatever takes your fancy but you MUST include a stamped element on it.

For my project this week I used a small MDF oval plaque which I embellished with paper flowers (stamped & cut out), punched and die cut shapes.

Here's What I did
I stamped several flower onto patterned paper and fussy cut them out, and then covered my MDF plaque with more patterned paper from the same pad. Distressing ink was used on the edge of the plaque and flowers to add texture and definition. Next I die cut a sentiment and some hearts from pink and brown card, then punched out a few branches and leaves from green card.

I glued all the components to the plaque and to finish off I added a few gems and pearls. Lastly I attached a strip of pink ribbon.

Here's what I Used
Cardstock/Paper: Pink, Green & Brown CS, Craftwork Cards 'Country Garden'
Stamps: Dreamees 'Sunflower' Set, Hero Arts 'Dotted Flowers'
Dies: Sizzix 'You & Me', Memory Box 'Cross Stitched Hearts', Creative Expressions 'Perfect Peony Open Petals'
Other: Dreamees MDF Oval Plaque, Distressing Inks, Pearls, Mini Butterfly Punch, Martha Stewart 'Leaf Branch' Punch, Martha Stewart 'Branch' Punch, Lace, Gems, ribbon
