French shabby chic!


Back again, I have quite a few cards I want to post over the next few days due to my big order and have used various challenges to inspire me:)
This is for an 18th birthday for a ladies grand daughter. I got these gorgeous vintage chic papers from Creative cardmaking mag from a french collection, they are just gorgeous in real life. The image is from Sugar Nellie, she is so lovely to colour and I thought she went so well with these gorgeous papers.

Image - Sugar Nellie (thanks Christine)
Papers - creative Cardmaking mag and silver mirri paper
Medium - Coloured with promarkers
Embellishment - metal swirl, ribbon, ms punch, nestie circle

I would like to enter this into
Stampin Sisters in Christ - followed their sketch to a tee!
Craft-room Challenge -their first challenge and its anything goes
Paper Sundaes - Vintage or shabby chic
Dream Valley - stamp something
Fussy and fancy - 3 papers, 2 embellishments, 1 ribbon
Sweet Stampin Challenge - something french or sausy

Before I go I want to ask a favour. My daughter is entered into the NEXT model competition and she needs some votes. If you have a minute she would really appreciate it. HERE is the link:) Thanks so much.
