Another Saturday . . . another challenge at KL Stampin N Scrappin!  :)

Debbie M has challenged us all to "Get Shabby!!'
And we just cannot wait to see what you all come up with!
I really liked this challenge but wasn't sure I was getting shabby enough.  I wanted to
pile on the goodies like Debbie did after seeing her sweet shabby card.  LOL
But, I kept mine a little bit CAS I guess with a pretty big image on a regular A2 sized card.
Thinking now I should gone bigger, but it has been a busy week with a couple more
Father's Day cards and a birthday card to finish out the day, so . . .
well, this was about a 30 minute card as it was.  :)
The Deets/Blah-Blah:  The papers are really close to the colors
in BasicGrey's Lemonade, but they have butterflies on it
and some vibrant pink, so I thought the sweet Sarah Kay image
would look good in pink and yellow layerd on a piece of the gray from
Stampin Up.  I inked the edges with white to shabby them up a litttle and the paper is roughed
up a bit, but it isn't all that noticeable in the photo.  The image itself was colored with prisma colors and gamsol except for the flowers, skin and shirt, which were colored with Copics.

Most of the items were from my Secret Sister card kit (thank you SS if you are reading)!! :)
And the adorable image is from Sarah Kay
(not available in the store, but there are others like her there).
   Isn't she sweet?!  I may have to find this one.  :)

And . . those lovely crocheted flowers are so very soft and delicate!  These ones aren't from my store,
but I do sell some that are similar.  These are so pretty with the added pearl and pretty pink coloring.

Okay, enough blah-blah . . . get to it, ladies.   Let's see your Shabby Chic creations
and link them up at KL Stampin N Scrappin DT blog to win!  You can comment here too and let me
know that you are playing along.  I would love to see what you create!!

Have a GREAT weekend and Happy Father's Day with the
fellas in your lives!!
