A touch of Shabby Chic
We have been having such a lot of work done on the house recently, it's been really difficult to get any crafting or blogging done. I think we're just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so hopefully things will soon return to normal.
I've told you all before about how much I love living in this village, but I really can't stress enough how much my life has changed since moving here, it really was the best thing we've ever done.
Our neighbours have become good friends and we've never had such a busy social life, or so much fun.
This card was commissioned by one of my neighbours (who is now one of my best friends) for her daughter's birthday. She has recently redecorated her guest room for when her daughter stays and it is the same style and colour palette as my card.
The funny thing about it is, that neither of us had seen what the other one had done, isn't it strange? It just shows that we both have impeccable taste, ha ha!
* Image - Saturated Canary 'Ava'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and pencils
* Papers - Prima 'Almanac'
* Dies - Marianne (birdcage) and Poppystamps 'Simple Banner'
* Everything else from my stash
I was really pleased with how this card turned out and I just LOVE these papers. The only disappointment was my colouring skills (especially her hair) My eyesight seems to be getting worse and it's becoming increasingly harder to colour properly. Such a shame as colouring was always one of my favourite pastimes, ah well.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Mania 'Anything Goes'
Papertake Weekly Challenge 'Spots 'n' Stripes'
