Ooooo Its Time for a New Paper Play Challenge

Hello Everyone!!

Well its Thursday and that is time for a new challenge over at Paper Play Challenges!!  I'm really enjoying being on the Design Team its soooo much fun!!

Anyway - this week we are challenging you to:

Shabby Chic/ Vintage

Well I kinda think I have this one in the bag, I think I love this style!!  So for my card this week, I have used the very cool but Shabby Vintage Couch, Big Ribbon Tilda and the Heart Boarder from Magnolia's current collection - Your so Special!!  So here it is:

Gosh the couch is lush huh?  I stamped it in Antique Linen because I saw Kylie do it, and I just loved it sooooo much - so that's her idea but I'm sure she won't mind me knicking it!! heheheh I have embossed the heart boarder and I also did a little sponging around the edges with Brushed Corduroy... My paper is band spanking new - I got in the mail just before putting this card together!!  WHOOHOOO its a new 6x6 from Websters - Spring Market!!

Anyway I hope you will jump on over to Paper Play and check out the deets so you can enter too!! While your there, I'm sure you will check out the fantastic eye candy the Design Team have made!!!
