Fabulous Friday - A Little Shabby Chic

Happy Friday everyone.  Wow these days are really going by quickly. Before you know it, it will be Christmas again LOL!

Anyways, first off I would like to apologise for my lack of blog visiting over the past few weeks. Now that things are returning to normal I will be visiting again and seeing what you have all been up to.

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes, so if you craft anything you can enter the challenge.

As part of the Design Team we were given the brief to use a die cut, you can if you wish follow along with that or not :-)

I have used a fabulous new download collection called Belle Papillon.  It is shabby chic and vintage all rolled into one.  If you like stamping, there are also complete kits with stamps, papers, dies and the CD for you to play with - why not go take a look in the Polkadoodles store today - HERE.

Everything on my card is from the collection, except the background leaves for which I used the Super Sprigs Polkadoodles Die - I printed of a paper from the collection and then used the die.

For the inside I have started merging my layers using the Silhouette Design Studio program.  I do all my card designing in there, then all I do is print and cut all the pieces.

I have inked all the layers and all the pieces before assembling my card.  I adore those butterflies, they look so delicate.

I love the soft pastel colours in this collection, but with a little ink on the edges it really makes them pop.

Once again, I hope to be picking up the crafting bug again and will be catching up with all of you soon.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.
