Fab 'n' Funky - #182 You Can Stick It!
 House of Cards - Month Two: Shabby & Vintage

I used netting and some ink stained lace to create a shabby look. The netting is held down with hand stitching and left loose around the edges. I added the candle sticker on top of the pumpkin sticker and added a raffia bow to the candle. One of my favorite things is taking stickers and combining them and embellishing them!

To really keep the sticker secured to the netting I used Helmar's 450 to ensure that it stays right where I want it too!
