I sure am learning a lot as I whittle down my Mad March Birthdays list... especially what works for me and what doesn't! Including blogger at the moment! I keep signing up to follow blogs and by the next day I am no longer following... hmmmm
Okay todays card is again my Magnolia "Christmas Tilda With Puppy" but she is not for Christmas again today since I wanted to explore the image a little more after yesterdays effort. I think she lends herself quite well to birthdays! Anyway enough babble... the card:
To tie in with a Shabby Chic theme everything including the lace (given to me many years ago by my Mother In Law!) got a good dabbing of Tim Holtz Distress Ink... I did find there is a fine line between "distressed" and "too much" lol.
The Challenges... well firstly... thanks to all of the Challenges for giving me some direction and some deadlines! No I don't expect to win anything but you are all giving me some great ideas! Now the ones this card is entered in...
