KLSNS Challenge #35

Well, the weather held out for us and we finally made it Strawberry picking on Thursday ~ we do this every year and the kids love it ~ the really nice thing is that it's only a few minutes away. The kids were a bit bummed that the ice cream stand was closed when we were finished, so I think we will just head up there again this weekend for some yummy strawberry sundaes!   

Today it's time for our weekly challenge at KLSNS  and Debbie challenged us to get Shabby.  Now when I think of Shabby, I think of girly, distressing, lace, pearls and that sort of thing, although I also think the same for Vintage (but not necessarily girly), so I don't know if I'm right or not, but here is my card:

I used a CC Designs image, Puppy Kiki, colored her in with copics and then sponged the oval.  After that I used the cracked glass technique on this to fit the theme (at least my take of it).  All papers were sponged and the some were also distressed.  The lace was from a box of vintage laces I purchased awhile back and I used it to make the flower as well ~ I thought it looked better with this than a prima.  The pearl pin is a vintage one and I added two vintage beads to it.  This card took an entirely different direction than I originally anticipated, but I am really pleased with the end result.  

We would love to have you join in our challenge this week and see your take on Shabby cards.    Stop on over at the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see some wonderful eye candy from the rest of the Design Team.
