Shabby Tea Room Week # 44 Sketch This

Good morning everyone

Hope everyone is OK and enjoying crafting!  I decided to do the The Shabby Tea Room challenge # 44 this week which is a sketch.

Here is the sketch

and here is my card

and a close up

You can't quite see in the photo but the BPs have a really subtle polka dot on them one with large dots and the other with small dots and the papers also have a subtle sheen to them too (from Craftwork Cards BTW).  For the middle panel well I was with my crafting buddy Shirley one day and we were having a play around with masks and distress inks and that is when this was created - I loved have it turned out but up until today it has been in a folder in my cupboard - such a shame really!!!!  But I guess we have all got lots of things hidden away.  I love the shabby chic look but its not usually something I try - I hope in this card I've done the shabby chic look some justice - or maybe I need to practice some more - but that would mean buying more gorgeous ribbons and embellies - LOL!

Anyway thanks for stopping by and any comments (good or bad) greatly received!

Happy Crafting

Hi Tina, this is a stunning card, I really love the shabby chic, vintage look. Your distressed background is beautiful and the embellies are perfect.
Have a good week.
