This is for Digital Stamp Oasis's Digital Tuesday Challenge #2 Shabby Chic

Ok, so this is my atempt at Shabby Chic. I really didn't know what shabby chic was. I had to e-mail Ellie to ask her what is was. She told me it was lots of destressing, and dressed up with flowers, pearls and/or rhinestones. I don't really do shabby chic, but here is what I came up with. Hope it works!! LOL

My images is from Digital Stamp Oasis colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits. I popped up the flower with demensionals. My pearl ribbon is from the very first time Faith (markie's mom) and I ever went shopping together for goodies to make cards over two years ago. I got the ribbon because I thought it was pretty. Didn't know what I was gonna do with it, but I got it anyway. Now, low and behold, I finally got to use it!! LOL

What do y'all think?

  3. Hi Michelle, I saw your comment on Ellie s challenge
    To make a hyper link, click on the title of your card and copy the url at the top.
    now go to add new post and type what you want, then highlight the bit you want to make into the link eg 'here'
    now click on the little green circle ( world) icon on the top right side of the box this opens a box to add your url address, add tour card url into that and it creates the link.
    Copy the whole text and post it on the challenge blog :-) easy :-)

    hope this helps :-)
