Shabby Chic Birthday Calla Lilies - Sunshine Color Palette

The sunshine yellows continue here.
It started with this Woodland Anemone card:
then this ink-embossed Anna Griffin-inspired oriental card in soft yellow:
But here is another take,
this time in a Shabby Chic style and utilizing a lot of different
textures and scraps from previous projects.
I ink-embossed the wood-grain onto the card-base and built from there.
I think these little clay calla lilies add the perfect height and interest.
While I love nice fabric or paper flowers as much as anyone,
sometimes something a little different is just the ticket.
Nestled next to them are some double-stemmed wedding pearls meant for
use in boutonnieres and corsages.

Shabby-chic style
