Shabby Card for CVC

It's the 1st June and a new challenge starts at Country View Challenges and it's the lovely Astrid who has chosen Shabby Chic as the theme for this month. Once upon a time I used to love making shabby cards but the vintage in me took over and shabby seems to have been on the back burner, but preparing my DT samples has got me inspired again and I just loved creating this. I now want to do more lol.

I had a sort of design in my head and collected the embellishments I wanted to include .....

..... and papers for the background, cutting them to size and distressing the edges.

Once I had got everything to fit together in a composition/layout I liked all I had to do was put it together.

The only thing I added was the little butterfly which provided a nice pop of colour.

I have already cut the papers and gathered the same elements together to make a couple more of these for my very diminished card box.

I hope we will see you over at the new challenge, I am so looking forward to seeing what you come up with and as always there is lots of inspiration from my gorgeous teamies, not only today but throughout the month and I will be back on Sunday with a shabby vintage canvas for you.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great month of June.
