Each time I use these colors, I remember that Pink and Chocolate is my favorite color combination. I’m not much of a “Girly-Girl” but I love flowers on my cards – especially Vintage Shabby Chic Cards. I am combining challenges from some of my favorite sites. CC3C’s Challenge #11 refers to Tim Holtz‘s Compendium of Curiosities Book Page 52 – Effect Powders. (They even have a $50 prize from Inspiration Emporium!) SSS asks for my favorite technique and Distressing is definitely my favorite Technique. I made sure this one was very distressed and sponged to make it look older. Frilly & Funkie wants a project with heart and Mojo provided the layout. Whew! Click here to subscribe to my mailing list for exclusive samples.
