Liking Shabby Chic




I made another shabby chic card and had so much fun with it. Did distressing with inks, tearing, tarnishing, and some splotching on the heart. I'm entering it into the Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge IBSIC #59 using this photo as inspiration:

Also, I'm entering this card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery-http://joannamunster.com/customer-gallery/
Aren't these the prettiest colors on the inspiration photo?

Also entering my card into the Oozak challenge #17-Anything Goes With a  Girlie Theme-ribbon, crochet, lace,  bling....

Entering Sister Act Card Challenge #14 for 2nd time this challenge-Anything Goes

Recipe:
Stamps-Inspired by Stamping-Flowers Bloom and Vintage Postcards
Paper-PTI Vintage Cream, My Mind's Eye paper pad/Sunshine, music sheet is scraps

I'm still listening to the beautiful Amazing Grace that I gave the link to on my post yesterday. To me, it is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard. I'm listening as I post. :-) Can't seem to get enough of it.
