Framed Collage

DSCF6441-1

I am still working on my shabby-chicness techniques….I see such beauties out in blogworld and try to recreate them, but I still need some practice!  I created a little frame with some cardboard and Nesties, then painted it, tried to distress it and ended up spraying it with some Gold Glitter Spray from Krylon---NEAT STUFF!  A little swoosh and my whole creation was glittered in a second!  Unfortunately, it is difficult to see in the photo:

I did some collage stamping on the background, added a chipboard bird’s nest and some lace & ribbon, then finished with some bling & little tags that don’t mean anything, so I guess this card will be whatever I need it to be when the time arises!  Meanwhile, this fulfills a few challenges:
