Clean and Simple Shabby Chic

Hi all,

I hope you are all well on this chilly October morning.

I'm here with a card for the new Crafty Cardmakers challenge. Betty is our hostess and she has chosen the theme "SHABBY CHIC".  Aagh, I can't do shabby chic, I can only do clean and simple, however I've done my best and combined the two styles and I think my card although CAS is still quite soft and feminine.





I suppose the only shabby chic elements are the seam binding and I did distress the edges of the tag! The dress form stamp is from Kaisercraft, stamped in Versafine Sepia. The flowers on the DP have nice sparkly centres and is very pretty IRL.

Our sponsors for this challenge are 



I hope you can find the time to join in and remember your creation doesn't have to be a card.

Okay that's me for today, the kids are on a two week break from school so I suppose I better go and get them out of bed for some lunch!

Thanks for popping in,
Take care

Love your combination of shabby chic and clean and 'elegant' (simple always sounds so insulting, lol)

Lovely soft colour palette. A softly feminine delight
