Vintage/shabby chic by Tickled Pink

Yeah, poet and don't know it, NOT! I have a horrible time coming up with titles for my posts, sorry! Todays challenge for Paper Sundaes is Vintage/shabby chic and our sponsor is Tickled Pink designs. I have several of their images, they are so much fun to color and some of them were absolutely perfect for this challenge.


Now, this is not really my style but I am very pleased with how the card came out. I even used one of the stick pins that Elaine sent me for my birthday, perfect timing! I added a few more beads onto it, some WOC flowers and the paper is Kaisercraft. The corner is part of a doily I distressed and folded over then I added a few liquid pearls around to finish it off. Oh, and some beautiful lace for the final touch and a little walnut distress ink to most of the edges. Happy Memorial Day everyone in case I don't post tomorrow!
