Shabby Chic!

Hello Everyone and thank you for joining me today. A warm welcome to new followers too both here on Blogger but also on Bloglovin - I very much enjoy sharing my creative journey with you all.


So here with are at the start of another month and a new challenge at Country View Crafts. Astrid has chosen our theme this month and it is:


Shabby Chic



Just perfect for me! I decided to use some of my favourite papers from Maja Design for this card. As you can see I have used up a few little scraps as well. For me shabby chic means layers, pink/blue colours, muslin, scruffy edges and stitching.



And of course flowers, buttons, pins, pearls and ribbons!



I do hope you will find time to join in the challenge. If you need some inspiration just hop on over to the blog (HERE) as my Design Teamies have pulled together an amazing collection of Shabby Chic projects. And of course there will be more to come through the month. 


Bye for now!

The edging on the layers looks like you've used lots of fabric - a wonderful effect. Just love it.

Could there be a better theme for you? Stunning work, Jennie - from the charming photo to the shabby edges, from the frothy cheesecloth to your magical flowers. It's lovely.
