Paper Shelter Challenge....Shabby Chic



If you follow my blog you will know that I struggle am creatively challenged wit 'Shabby Chic'. I love it when someone else does it, but woe is me when I have to make a Shabby Chic card. Unfortunately (for me) that is our next challenge at THE PAPER SHELTER!  This card is supposed to inspire you. LOL! Well, I gave it my best shot and I must admit I love the image I used. She is called "Victoria" and you can click on the link to go directly to the Store. I colored her with Copics and then cut the image out with a circle stitched die. I then mounted the die on a Spellbinders die cut. Pretty gold liquid pearls helped to pop the corners. I used a gold 'Frantage' around the image. (Obviously, I need to practice with this also.) Some bingo tickets, corner die cuts, rhinestone  brads, and additional liquid pearls finish of my 'shabby but maybe not so chic' card. I hope you all will join us in this challenge....I will be looking forward to learning something from each of you. Have a blessed day! 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song: Bicycle Built For Two
Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I'm half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.
