…she in thee, calls back the lovely April of her prime



I’ve been in a shabby chic mood of late and have another project, a card this time, in that style featuring the gorgeous new Mother’s Day Betty image from Simply B Stamps.


To make up my card I’ve played along with my favourite sketch challenge over at Outlawz, this week’s sketch was just perfect for a shabby chic style card.  I had to swap out the rectangles for ovals though as I didn’t have anything in my stash (dies or chippies) that were rectangles of the right dimensions.  I tried to keep my flowers in a sort of oval shape but they ended up a bit bigger than the bottom oval, again I was limited by what was in my stash.

To help me select my shabbilicous elements I used the tic tac toe board at Sugar Creek Hollow.  I actually couldn’t decide which row or column to use so I used two (lace, ribbon, pearls and embossing, ribbon, distressing), I also have some flowers in there too for good measure.

Hiding in My Craft Room has a Mother’s Day challenge on at the moment so I am also entering my card over there.
