Shabby Chic is the word!


How was your week? Mine was a busy one, but thank God for good health, because while we are healthy we can do everything, bit by bit. Today I have another card to share with you, and as you can guess from the title, it is a shabby chic creation.

Today I used Oakley as Groom for my card. I had a commission for a Wedding card for the Groom, a young man who's getting married. This will be his younger sister's card. Men cards are difficult.. Wedding cards for Men.. even worse!! lol

I really have a hard time to choose paper, images.. AND embellishments! Men are SO complicated! So hard to please! lol

Well I decided to use Papermania Nostalgia Warm, as they have soft browns and light blue, a sort of Weathered Wood distress ink colour. In fact I used the ink to colour the image, and kept to that combo.

I hope that it is liked, I'm so uncertain when it comes to this types of cards! Amd I have one more to do! :) Wish me luck! But this time it is for the mother of the groom, to give it to her son. Maybe I will base more on the classical white this time.

This is a close up of the card, and you can see my funky old styled oil burner in the background. Isn't it cool? In the small kettle you put the water mixed with some droplets of scented oil, and it is really relaxing when that sweet smell starts filling the room when heated.

This is how I completed the inside, what do you think about it? Should I give it to her? Or not?? Desicions, desicions!!!!

Have a lovely weekend my friend. I am hoping you WILL let me know you've been here, and I really would like to know what you sincerly think of this card. Huggies to each of yo for spending some time here.

Absolutely stunning & I'm sure the sister will be so proud to give this to her brother. I cannot imagine that he won't like it either. The colours are just so good together & the inside is a real treat.
Thanks so much.
Thanks too for the BnW - it's so so true, cannot imagine not chatting to Him.
