Shabby Chic Butterfly


I rarely do shabby chic. I have a hard time with it, honestly. But I LOVE the results, so I try to make something in this style every now and then. Some products are SO easy to use and provide GORGEOUS results. Webster's Pages is certainly this way, and I always love projects I create with their products! At Archivers last week, I picked up a sheet of The Girls' Paperie in Paper Girl, and this is DEFINITELY an easy to use paper! So much fun to use this quilt-like patterns!
I created this card for the Card Positioning Systems sketch 176. It looked like a challenge (to me!), so I decided to take it on! I really am happy with the way it turned out. :) Hope you like it! Let me know if you play along, too...I'd love to see what you create!

I am entering this in the Moxie Fab Shabby and Vintage Challenge! :)

Have a wonderful day!!

Paper: Pink Pirouette (SU), Paper Girl (The Girls' Paperie). Ink: Chamomile Vintage Touch Dea Dye, Dark Chocolate (PTI). Stamps: Fillable Frames 4 (PTI). Accessories: Beautiful Butterflies Die (SU), Soft Pink Rhinestones, Cream Seam Binding.
