Forgotten Funkies - Shabby Saturday

There are a lot of Forgotten Funky downloads so Anice has decided to have a special post once a month and will challenge the Design Team to use that particular download to create something! And this month, to kick it all off, its the turn of Shabby Saturday!

It was my Mum's Birthday a few weeks ago and I made her this card using the Shabby Saturday download - the large letters are included along with papers and a sentiment page too! All beautifullly co-ordinated! The download is only £3.49 and you get a lot for the price!

I've used some lovely white linen effect card from The Papermill Shop Direct, cut out the large alphabet letters, added some stripy paper (stripy is always good!) plus the sentiment tile and found some matching embroidery thread in my stash.

I've used tiny foam pads to raise the letters and sentiment from the page - I bought around 50,000 of the foam pads some time ago in the Poundshop - it was two for a pound and I didn't realise how many of the foam pads there were on a sheet of A4..... so I've got quite a few to use up!

For more inspiration and to see how the rest of the Design Team have used Shabby Saturday, pop over to Get Funky!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Milk Coffee Challenge: Spots and Dots
Crafting By Designs: Anything Goes
Fab n Funky: Spots and Stripes
The Stamping Chef: Spots and Stripes
