shabby chic...

I have had the stuff to make this card on my desk all week and I have only just got around to it this morning... I decided on the colour scheme before anything else and then I picked the stamp set, I didn't really know what I was going to create so just sat down and began with a card blank and as a crafter this is something that I very rarely do - I always have an idea of where I want my creation to go... However I was very pleased with the result.

I made two panels one in craft and one in baja breeze distressed the edges and then inked them. I then made a whisper white panel and added the image from Just Believe stamped in versamark on which I sprinkled heat and stick powder and then added dazzling diamonds I love a bit of sparkle!- I then sealed this with the heat gun again - once I had sprinkled lots of glitter over my desk, myself and the floor.

I added binding ribbon in craft t the left hand side of the card with a knot detail and then added the sentiment from close as a memory and this also had distressed and inked edges... I also added a button to the sentiment

I am not sure if this is really classed as shabby chic - but I loved making it...

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card - Debbi x
