So this is my newest make and my first attempt at the vintage/shabby chic style card.
The card itself was from a tutorial by TERESA ALLDAY and I would like to thank her for sharing her work and tutorials so I can learn and get inspiration from her.
I welcome all your comments but please be gentle with me lol.

I used papers from SCRAP & CRAFT
Petaloo flowers from SCRAP & CRAFT
Embellishments and lace trim from SWEET PARIS collection from DOVECRAFT

I am fairly pleased with the end result considering it is a first attempt.
This will be going off to USA for a young ladys 18th birthday.
I hope she likes it!!

So its been a while since I posted here.
Lots been going on and I get sidetracked so easily when browsing I forget what I originally set out to do.
But Im going to try and keep this up to date as much as possible :)
So what have I been doing??
Ive been trying new things to do with cards, following lots and lots of blogs (thank you ladies for sharing your talent). I found many I fell in love with and follow them constantly.
One being Teresa Allday whose blog is Craftingallday Creations
Teresa makes the most gorgeous cards!
And I have taken some inspiration from her work, and I thank Teresa for allowing me to do that. Also to thank her for the tutorials on her blog....
I have also been making some 3D models, some of which come from My SVG Hut. This lady makes tremendous 3D models which are very easy to assemble and if you have problems the instructions are right there.

I love anything vintage and shabby chic so I will be trying these new cards a bit longer...they are so pretty and could anyone not like them!
