A BIT SHABBY and CHIC........

Hellooooooo everyone........
This afternoon I have my
Magnolia Down Under
card to share with you!!

The girl's over at the challenge blog have made some BEAUTIFUL cards!! I hope you will be able to stop by and have a look. Maybe you are feeling a bit shabby and tiny bit chic yourself and will join us in the fun....

I think you have guessed by now that this weeks challenge is:
SHABBY CHIC..and you have to use LOTS of white...

Now I tell ya that my card is SHABBY but as far as CHIC not so sure..

I do love the get out my files and rough things up for this style of card. Love to put just a tab bit more inking on my edges of the layers and I love to be able to sew NOT SO straight also!! LOL......

The image that I have used is one of my new favorites..
(I see that Diana is out right now on the site but I do think that she just got more in yesterday and may not have them listed in the store just yet)
I have colored her with my copic markers added dots on her dress with my acrylics.
Papers that I have used is not many today...... just a Beachy Shadow Wash from Paper Advantures and some BAZZILL cardstock and of course I had to get a few checks in there from 7 gypies.
For the embellies I have used tons of flowers and a few feathers. I have mixed and match all different ones to get the look that I wanted. Those beautiful leaves are from Prima Flowers vine collection. I have used a photo corner by Melissa Frances and a shabby pices of trim.
I did add some stickles to my edges of some of the layers and when I was all done I covered my imge with a piece of paper and then spritzed my whole card with glimmer mist.
CHALLENGES to enter with this card today:

FUSSY and FANCY: Use a zipper or a feather
STAMP SOMETHING: Spring somethings
ALLSORTS: for a special lady
TOTALLY GORJUSS: Spring has sprung

Just a little reminder that Magnolia-Licious Highlites is having a big
EASTER-SPRING EXTRAVAGANZA CONTEST going on right now. TONS of BIG BIG prizes to be won. Stop by there to see the rules and the challenges.
MAYBE you can find time to do one project for both challenges!!!

I hope that you will take a minute and leave me a comment.
I love to read them all and then hop over to see what you have made.
