Vintage / Shabby Chic at Crafty Little Fairies Challenge

Hello my lovely crafty friends.
I hope all is well with you and you are having a good week. Sending hugs to those in need of them.

Today is the start of a new Crafty Little Fairies Challenge

Our theme this week is
Vintage / Shabby Chic
For this challenge we are sponsored by 
The prize for the lucky winner is a £10 voucher.


Now, I must admit. I love vintage style cards but I really struggle with making them. I decided to use a stamp that I was lucky to win from a Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog hop last year with some gorgeous papers and stamps that were free with a craft magazine.



Items Used:
Stamp - Little Miss Muffet - the Smell of Roses coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers and detailing stamps - Prima Fairy Belle (free with craft mag)
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studio
Spellbinders Floral Oval 
Die-Namics Mini Rolled Roses Die
Lace and bird from stash

If you take a look at the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge you will see some wonderful creations by the rest of this week's design team.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Little Miss Muffet Challenges  - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs
