Shabby Chic

Morning All.

Here we are halfway through another week - where does time go.

Well, this weeks challenge at Fab 'n' Funky filled me with dread initially, as the theme this time round is -

Shabby Chic,

and this is soooooo not my usual style. But, once I finally sat down to tackle the theme, I found I was really quite pleased with the outcome. That has got to be one of the best things about being on a DT, the fact it forces yo into trying new techniques and themes, and sometimes, you discover something you really actually quite like.

The paper on this card is from Craftwork Cards, the charm is from my shop, and the image is good old LOTV.

I hope you will pop on over and join in the fun, even if it is not your usual style, you may just find you like it like I did.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges;

Moving Along With The Times - precious metals

Paper Play - distressing
