Shabby chic


SECOND POST FOR TODAY.
I hope this card is distressed and vintage enough. I distressed and inked all the edges and though this sweet image has a rather old fashioned look about her. I'm not too sure whether she is Rachel Anne Miller or Sugar Nellie as she isn;t one of my stamps. The papers are BG Wisteria and K&Co Roam. Flowers are Wild Orchid with punched fern leaves.
