Paint thin lines across the top and handle with Emperor's Gold Silks to bling it up. Add some shabby chic to the handle by scruffing it up with some sandpaper.
Paint the chair with white gesso, let dry. Use a foam blending tool to add Forest Moss Distress Ink (DI) to the chair seat, back, and arms. Scruff up the legs with sandpaper for a shabby chic look.
Add Vintage Photo DI to the lace doily. Paint Beautiful banner with Vintage Lace paint. Sponge Forest Moss DI around the edges, then hit the high spots with Persimmon and Seedless Preserves DI.
I also added the acrylic "Celebrate" sticker to the lower right on the card.
Use the Adorning Squares die to cut and emboss the inside piece of card stock. Stamp the sentiment in the center with black ink.
