RCC2-Shabby-Happy Birthday!

Hi there!

Wow, I miss being here!  I haven't had much time this week to play in my craft room.  Work was very busy this week.  Yesterday was great today...not so great.  But, that's OK 'cause instead of planting more flowers I had fun creating a card.  I found a new challenge blog over at Ribbon Carousel.  It is only their second challenge.  This week the theme is "Shabby".  One has to add all those "shabby goodies" such as ribbon, lace, seam binding, twine, which could be anything that comes on a spool.  I used my new Hero Arts stamp and colored their dresses with colored pencils.  I inked up the image, lace, and label with Antique Linen distress ink.  Added some seam binding, pearl cotton, and a lovely pin.  Thanks for looking and adding any comments because it's very appreciated!  Take care and have a great week!
