sweet shabby chic

A big HELLO to all:)

It certainly has been a long while since I last posted hasn't it. I've been so busy with work, school and general life...I promise to have some up to date posts coming up. I've been busy creating. Got some new Tim Holtz goodies, and have some PTI and Basic Grey goodies coming my way in the mail..Oh boy. Be still my heart... the creating that is to come *drool*
Here's a sweet card I have been playing around with. A pretty in pink birthday card...

Prima papers, grungeboard cutouts( my new favourite embellishments.. you can do pretty much anything to them..paint, stamp, emboss, distress... limitless ideas) ribbon and half pearls..

I painted the cutouts and distressed them so they didnt look so 'new'.. I wanted a more aged look and feel for the card.. Distress ink around the edges.. don't you just love it..

Well that's all I have for today.. needed a bit of cheer after this rainy, grey day. I'll be back soon with more posts. Thanks for stopping by!
