Polkadoodle Challenge Week 37 - Shabby Chic

Time for another Polkadoodle challenge and the theme for the fortnight is

Shabby Chic

Kraft card and pink - perfect shabby chic combination!  The polkadot pink papers are from the Serenity Fairy CD layered with foam pads onto kraft card letters (my own templates) then haphazardly added to the card base with half pearls for added detail.  Lots of tiny pearl dots around the edge of the card blank to keep it all contained.

And to be honest, the card, in my head, didn't start out like it ended!  Good luck with the challenge - pop over to the blog to see the rest of the Design Teams creations and inspiration and to check out the rules.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks:  Birthday
Aud Sentiments:  Anything Goes With A Sentiment
Cute Card Thursday:  Numbers
Southern Girls:  Layer It Up
Fab n Funky:  Shabby Chic
