SHABBY CHIC!!!


Good Afternoon!
We have a FABulous sunny day here today..Clear Blue skies too.
I went bowling again on Friday...no trouble at all lol...
The muscles must be getting back of form....  


Now don't laugh! But, this really really took me out of my comfort zone..A Shabby Chic card...Heck!
Change from Christmas!
This little cutie lives at Tiddly Inks and is called  'Be Bold, Be You' I've coloured her with Copics.....LOts of glitter...The edges have been distressed with Spun Sugar as have the butterflies...There's Ribbon/Lace/Round Doily from stash. Pion paper has been distressed...Spellbinder/Sizzix dies used both I have 'pin pricked'...... Kreate die...X-cut butterfly punch..I've used that darn Mosquito net again...Takes me longer and longer to get it back in the drawer lol...Thinks it must have been one of my best buys from E-Bay...

What a lovely card! I can never make a decent looking shabby chic card. My brain can't think that way, so I admire anyone who can do that style and make it look wonderful.

Your hard work really paid off, this turned out just beautiful, Chrissy! I think the pink inking around the image is a great detail!
