Vintage/Shabby Chic with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the very talented Tamara choosing the theme of

Vintage/Shabby Chic

now this week we are sponsored by
who is offering the winner a $15 voucher

So here is what I created for your inspiration, but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the other fabulous creations.
I made a friendship card to make someone smile, even if for a brief moment :) - this was sent to a very special blogging friend :)
The base layer and contrast is cream and I have distressed all the edges with my scissors.  I have used panels of some lovely vintage papers that have a shabby chic feel to them also.  The lace is also very delicate and hides behind the image plate.  I have added two half tags from the nesties and looped a wine glass charm through the top one, a little treat for the recipient too.

Here is the close up of the image coloured in copics
this was my second attempt as my new B91 Sketch was over juicy and dripped on her dress :(

Here is a close up of the wine glass charm with the little vintage butterfly

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Distressing

enjoy the rest of your day
