Shabby Thanks



My mojo is lacking lately, but eventually ideas come. Its been taking me twice as long to get a card done, and I have a couple that never got finished. It happens to all of us i'm sure. *whine whine*
So I did get this card made for a few fun challenges. 


You might notice the colors coincide with the CR84FN color challenge for this week, thats no accident! I love this color challenge blog, its in my top 5 fav challeng blogs. Their color boards are always gorgeous and inspiring.

see? no lie. 


I used the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge sketch for the layout. 
This one was a fun one.
WMS37 sketch


and the Make it Monday challenge inspired me to try some uber distressed edges. I love the way it looks. I just used my scissors like Lisa did in the video. I kept them closed, that way I wouldn't dull the blade. 
See the yellow scallops? I stamped a large button from Button Boutique in a row to make some fun scallops. They're not perfectly straight but that adds to the charm of it, right? I also used a molded flower I made, If you're interested I can add some to my Etsy shop for you to try out, just let me know. :o)

  2. Well done darling Danielle! What a stellar card as always but particularly so when you feel as if your mojo is waning. Brava! I love the wide and layered lace and your scrumptious handmade flower. These are what add to the luxness of this beautiful card. I reckon a little indulgence of sorts is due for you madam of whatever you particularly fancy. That may just give you the little extra boost you need. A new red lipstick or a fabulous little vintage goodie might be just the trick? *idea*. Worth a shot, hey? You're an inspiration!
