More shabby

Ohhh, look at me... Two posts in one day! And neither of them DT-related... Obviously, I'm procrastinating on something I should be doing... hehe.

So I was browsing Blogland and noticed that The Ribbon Girl's challenge was back up and running, so I decided to play along. As it was an anything goes, I decided to go shabby again.
Now, every single shabby chic card I'd made until now has always been square, but I happened to have a rectangular blank sitting on my desk I'd cut earlier, so decided to use that.

There is a lady in blogland whose work I really admire (ok, there are many, but I'm just going to mention one of them today, lol), and she most definitely inspired this card.
I'm talking of course about the fantabulous Pamellia!

I'm sure you'll know her, or have seen her around Blogland. She is brilliant at many styles, but she most often makes stunning shabby chic creations. She's one of the people I'd like to be when I grow up, and if you haven't yet, I strongly urge you go take a peek at her blog.

Anyways, here's my Pamellia-inspired card for the evening. It doesn't do her justice, but I enjoyed making it nonetheless.

I'm off to go play at The Ribbon Girl now.
And as per instruction I shall also take this to play over at In the Pink! ;-)

Have a great evening!

You picked a very talented blogger/cardmaker for your inspiration. With the lovely flowers, the layers and embellies, I think you've done a great job on this inspired beautiful card. I like the different shades of pinks you've used, added the delicate lace, and the tiny heart tucked in with the flowers. I think Pamellia would be very proud to know she's inspired this! TFS & Hugs

Well I'll be tickled pink! I know Pamellia will totally enjoy this and be so thrilled to see she inspired you. She's such a sweet little lady. Your design is gorgeous and shabbyliscious! Your use of the flowers and lace are beautiful and that sentiment is so perfect and correct! Awesome sauce! ~Niki

Pamellia really does make stunning cards and you have definitely captured the essence of her style and made it all your own with this fabulous shabby chic design.
It's so nice to use a quote as the centrepiece and all the flowers, ribbon and lace just look gorgeous :-)
You should enter this at In The Pink too; it would be perfect for our buttons and/or bows challenge and I'd love to see you come and play with us!
Big hugs, Kat xx
