Shabby Chic!!!!!

Seeing that Belles'n'Whistles have released some old Elizabeth Bell stamps reminded that I had the originals from Sugar Nellie Stamps and they needed to be dusted off. This one is one of my favourites not sure why I wanted to used the grungy papers from My Minds Eye but obviously thought it was a good idea when I was colouring.
The sketch I used is from Sketch Saturday but I turned it a bit to suit my image. The large flower is a Stamping up scallop circle punch, Nikki my demo showed us how to make it, then I wanted smaller flowers but they didn't quite work out.
After working on this card I worked out that I could only make a couple of cards a day cos the third one I'm never quite happy with and this card was a third.
I wonder what label I should give this card!

Well........I think this card is just so nice!!! You may think that the little flowers did'nt turn out right, but I think they did!! I love the look of the card, the colors, the shabby flowers!!!
Label this card as: "Just right!!"

Awww, cute as a button! :)

I truly love your style Debby, its so unique, and always done with such care and attention to detail.

Nice colours on this - quite unusual, but they really work.


Oh and btw, so envious of your MS punch collection - I have to hide mine as my OH knows exactly how much they cost, and if he knew how many I had he would go nuts! :D lol. Luckily I just rotate them! ;)
