Crazy 4 Challenges-Vintage/Shabby Chic

Okay, now seriously, be kind to me....BE KIND. I am NOT a Vintage-y, Shabby Chic, kinda girl...at all. I LOVE the look of it, and admire people that can pull it off, but I HATE it when I do it. It never looks right to me....egad!! Unfortunately for me, this week's challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog is to make a one of "those" kind of cards...and not being one to back down from a challenge, I struggled through.

I literally pulled out all my tricks for this card. I even used flowers, PRIMA flowers, and my old Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware kit from SU. Wow. I started by stamping my Cupid image from the My Favorite Things Inspired by Love set, in Pale Plum ink. I then stamped my sentiment over that with Perfect Plum. I then layerd the image with those two colors of card stock, and some Mellow Moss. The edges were lightly sponged with Pale Plum ink, as well. My crochet trim came from MFT, and I used the MFT Faux Crochet Border Die-namics.


Well, that is it for me for now. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!! Be sure to hop around and check out my other crazies!! LOVE these girls!!
