Shabby Chic

Hi everyone,

Wow what a difference it makes being online at home yippeee!!! Hopefully I should be able to post on a more regular basis now. Anyway, I wanted to show you my latest creation. Once again I turned to the beautiful Ella Blue DP's from GCD to create a shabby chic look. I used the fab Martha Stewart Button Emboss punch and some home made bunting to finish it off.
I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give it an aged look.
I will be entering this girlie in the following challenges: - Challenge 112 'Someone Special' - Challenge 18 'Easel Cards' - Challenge 24 'My Favourite Colours'

Bit of a jaunty angle for this pic:
