I bought some images from the fabulous new Scribble and Scrap store set up by Lexie and have only just had time to start playing with them. This is part of a sheet of 6 images, just £1 for the 6, unbelievable value. I really enjoyed making this shabby chic card with lots of layers and textures.

Papers - Nitwits Country Gent from LOTV
