Shabby-ing It Up.


Ok, my first card for 2012. Feeling good to be back sitting at my desk, everyone falling into old routines. Today we got a nice little snow storm. The first one this winter so I wasn't as irritated as usual when I shovelled the driveway ;)

I went with a vintage look for this card. Tons of inking and distressing. The butterflies were first stamped with polka dots, the sprayed with glimmer mist, then inked with both pink and black.




The sentiment is from We R Memory Keepers, as is the papers.

As I promised myself..... I made sure to fancy up the inside.

Ooh that is such a pretty card Farrah, love all that shabby chic! Gosh that was probably quite a snow storm if you had to shovel the driveway! It's chilly here but not in the same league as you get!! We very rarely get snow. Jill x
