Love

I love the shabby style of card making.  It matches my ideal design style perfectly.  But boy is it hard to achieve.  For some reason, lace and me just don't work.  And I find it so hard to avoid straight lines, right angles, clean cuts... what does that say about me.
But today I tried.
Sadly, I ended up with a straight edged, right angled card.
The thought was there.
I used THIS gorgeous Prima cardstock, it's double sided and I used both sides.  And I used THIS yummy stamp, my new favourite.
Hope you've had a good Monday - teaching was fun today. :)

LOL! Well I still think you have Shabby Chic cracked, even with the straight edges and right angles! Maybe it's the teacher in your that commands such straight lines?! ;D

Love this paper and card Lucy! Did you ink that pink butterfly background on the top LH corner paper or was it already there? I am not a real shabby chic type either as I want everything parallel etc! So I don't even try so you have done well.
