Thank you Kavitha, it was so nice reading about you. So now lets checkout what she has made. 

               Today I am sharing a shabby chic  layered card which is one of my most                        favorite style.

I layered two pattern papers,both distressed on the edges n added some white gesso.
Then I  added some layers of tulle n seam binding ribbon for  giving  dimension to my flower arrangement.Then I arranged some mulberry flowers n resin pieces. I added a little bit of gesso for the whole arrangement to give a  shabby look.

Hope you liked my card,sorry I couldn't make a tutorial this time,but if you have any doubt please feel free to ask in the comment section,see ya:).
