Shabby Chic

Good Morning All!

Just a quick post today.

It will be Alan`s Mums 85th Birthday in July so I got cracking with this card for her. 

I actually made the card first then decided who to give it to which is usual for me. I have urges to try certain designs or effects then fit them around people to give them to.

I know the Shabby Chic look has been around for some time now but I`m always a bit slow on the uptake. lol.
The backing paper is a freebie from the wonderful and very, very talented Jak Heath.
It was this paper that was the basis for my design.
The image is from my computer and cut out with a nestie.
The plain pink paper is from Papermania Blueberry Hill.
I`ve threaded some pale pink ribbon through some slightly glittery lace and also added my trademark bow.
The sentiment is from Rubbadubbado.
The 3 tiny pink roses are from a local haberdashery shop.

I`m really pleased with the result and thorough enjoyed making it.
Can I just take this opportunity to thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post, especially those of you who mentioned my bows. I really can`t take the credit for these because it`s all down to my Bow Maker from the Glittergirls. It cost me £4.99 and it`s one of the best pieces of equipment I`ve ever spent money on.
Thanks again, your comments are really appreciated.

Thanks for popping in,

  4. This is amazing - your MIL will love this Lynne! And I don't care if you do use a Bow Maker - you are still the queen of bows!!!

  5. I bought a bow maker a few weeks ago after you told me about it, I even recommended it to someone when I was working in a craft shop, but I still can't get the same results as you. It must be a talent too. xxx

  6. Absolutely stunning Lynne .. I love everything about it xx
