Vintage/Shabby Chic at The Paper Shelter

I hope you're all having a great week, I've not had so much time for crafting lately (a combination of various things spending more time with hubby :D, work :(, jewellery making & sewing) - there just aren't enough hours in the day.  I really enjoyed making this card for The Paper Shelter's new challenge which is "Vintage or Shabby Chic".  This gorgeous image I used is called "So Stylish" & I coloured it with ProMarkers, the beautiful papers are also from TPS & are called "Distinguished".  I did some machine stitching around all the edges (which I also distressed) & finished the card off with flowers, doily, lace, die cute leaves & corner, stamped ticket, pearls & Glamour Dust.  I also decorated the inside too :D 
There is the chance to win $20 to spend on The Paper Shelter website and if you have used one of their images on your creation but even if you haven't they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice!  I hope you can join us.

Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Vintage
Cute Card Thursday - Pink & Green
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - Distress It
Hooked On Crafts - All That Glitters
