a few challenges just for fun

Happy Sunday girls
It seems like an age since I made a card just for the heck of it and as I'd a chance to play yesterday I thought I'd have a bash at the Simon Says' challenge Shabby Chic!! Not at all my thing but once I got going I quite liked the effect lol


This fabby lady is a Clarity stamp, I've a couple of these and don't use them nearly enough but she's just right for the shabby look isn't she? Papers are from Funky Fairys, the ribbon and flowers are from me stash. I've chalked the edges of everything with some pink and brown chalk, basically I just sort of went with the flow. All in all I'm quite pleased with this one:)

1. Friday sketchers - sketch
2. - Allsorts - pink and brown colour scheme
3. Cupcake Crafts - going girlie
4. Simon Says - shabby chic
