Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Shabby Chic


Hello!

I'm extremely excited to be participating in my first Ribbon Carousel Challenge!

This week the challenge is shabby....vintage....shabby chic. Keywords are RCC2.

Ok I admit....I wanted to panic at first. I don't do shabby, chic or vintage. Now it's not that I don't {heart} the look, it just looks complicated and I figured I wouldn't be able to pull it off.
What do you think?
Did I distress enough? Make it shabby enough? Use the right elements?

I decided on some pretty Girls Paperie papers to get started.
Then I added in some wonderful dies and a pretty Verve sentiment from the Hope Blooms set.
Stamps: Hope Blooms; Cardstock: Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Girls Paperie DP; Inks: Black; Accessories: MFT Scallops, MFT Notebook Edge, Verve's Vintage Oval Die, Verve's Classy Label Die, Pearls, Sewing Machine, Lace, Ribbon, Prima Flower, Dimensionals
I bet you are excited to see what the other girls have created, right?
Pop on over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog and play along for your chance to win a prize!
Thanks for stopping by!

I'd be in a panic right along side you LOL! Think I have only made one shabby card for a Verve challenge and it wasn't all that shabby. You are well on your way though. Well done!
