Ooh La La

Good Morning to you all.  We have a new challenge starting at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme is Ooh La La - we want to see your Vintage or Shabby Chic cards.  Here is my card:

The Design Team were given some beautiful digital Collage Sheets from our sponsor for this challenge I used the Shabby Pink sheet which is available here.  The main image is from the sheet and then i cut out the sheet music and postcard, distressing them both with a bit of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.  The butterfly is also from the sheet, I fussy cut him out then curled his wings slightly before adding some Sepia Glossy Accents to it.  The frame around the image is a Marianne Design to which I added some Frantage.  The corner dies are Joy Crafts and have also had some Frantage.  The paper is from Craftwork Cards and the lace and brad were from candy I received from Mags - thank you!

As I mentioned earlier our sponsor is Lunagirl and they have some amazing digital Collage Sheets - thousands of images both in digital and CD form. Its really worth having a look at their shop here.

Please head over to Card Makin' Mamas for all the details and more inspiration from the DT Mamas!

Challenges I would like to enter:

A Creative Romance - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Pretty Women

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are having a BBQ again tonight, my sister and her partner are coming around.  Yesterday I went with my daughter and Rowan to his swimming class and I went in with him and my daughter watched.  He was quite happy splashing away and kicking him until it came to the part where he had to go underwater! He did not like that at all so I only did it the once bless him.

Thank you so much for looking and any comments you leave, take care xx
