A little bit Shabby

No sentiment !!! Now HOW could I forget that !!! Today is our 25th wedding anniversary & yes it is also April Fools Day … My husband has a little sense of humor …

When I 1st started card making if I got a piece of paper a little wrinkled it would get tossed out or recycled. Today I did it on PURPOSE !!! This is my 1st attempt at being a little bit shabby & I’m not sure I’ve achieved the look but it was fun trying. Used some Tim Holtz distress inks for the 1st time on the basket, bird & papers … I LOVE those inks & the look they give. I even used a little distress tool around the edges to “rough it up” …

Couldn’t decide if I liked adding a messy seam binding bow or not so will just loosely stick in on for now. I just got a bunch of different colors from Stamp Simply & Sharon rushed my order to me so I could get it at the RV Park before we left. Awesome customer support & very fast service.

Added some bunnies I cut with dies from velvet paper & a few flowers I made with the Fabulous Phlox die & a little baby’s breath (my new “favorite” thing) for some floral filler…

We have to get on the road as we have spent the winter in sunny Arizona & now it’s time to head home. Thanks for stopping by,
