The day has finally arrived for my first DT card for the Southern Girls Challenge, which is from New Zealand. As the northern hemisphere is moving into fall and winter, our NZ southern girl friends are thinking of spring! Lucky them! I am super-excited to be part of Team Lou and will be on the DT until February.
Challenge #97 is "Shabby Chic" - and I don't mind telling you I had some struggles with it. Shabby Chic is a stretch for me. I don't use lots of flowers, soft colors, doilies, or lace in my card design.
My card uses a Lacy Sunshine image called Gusty Oak from the Flower Pot collection (not necessarily a Shabby Chic image!). I tried to work around it by using Copics that were more in the grayed tones. A little bit of lace, patterned papers, and some white buttons helped with the Shabby Chic look. I hope you will join us with the challenge!
