Shabby chic - CraftyHands DT

Good morning everyone.

Time for another challenge over at CraftyHands, and this fortnight it's one of my favourites... Shabby Chic.

I figured this would be a perfect opportunity to have a play with one of my new LOTV paper pads (yes, as a matter of fact I do have all 6 of the new ones! Oops! lol), and also my newest addition to my LOTV stamp collection.

Naturally I had to add some lace and pearls, flowers (from WOC) and seam binding (from The Ribbon Girl)! I can't quite remember where the heart charm came from, as I went on a bit of a spree a while back and ordered a heap from several different places, and they all ended up in the same box!
There is actually a tag behind the image panel with a sentiment that reads "Remember that something incredibly wonderful is always possible", which was a Kaisercraft stamp. But like a numpty I forgot to take a picture of it, and I no longer have it to photograph! D'oh!

Now, my fellow teamies have got some gorgeous treats in store for you all, so I suggest you go take a peek and leave them some love. And if you fancy joining in, there's this lovely prize up for grabs:

Hope to see your entries soon!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Bingo (Ribbon, pearls, flowers and ribbon, lace, charms)
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Shabby Chic
I <3 Promarkers - Anything Goes (Image coloured with Promarkers as always)
Deep Ocean Challenge - For a Friend  (card is on it's way to a friend who needs a pick-me-up as I write this!)

Wishing you a craft-tastic day!
