Shabby chic


I love making this style of card and aren't I good as I have used another of my new stamps bought at Ally Pally. This must be a record. I stamped it in brown on kraft for a softer look. The paper is LOTV Timeless Victorian, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons from my favourite vintage butterfly range.I used another of my favourites, the Tim Holtz clock die. The butterflies were another new purchase, made with a Joy die and tied with string.
