A Shabby Chic Christmas

It's a new challenge at Southern Girls Challenge today... Our theme is Girly/Shabby Chic. 

Our 2 super fabulous sponsors for this challenge are.....


.. 

I was lucky to get to work with an image from Lacy Sunshine called Curly Sue Victorian Christmas


Shabby Chic is a genre I find difficult but was really pleased with the results I got with this one.  I found some pretty PP and a chipboard frame to show off my girl.  I made the poinsettia with a couple of punches and some gems.  Added some dark green die cut leaves and a Spellbinders fancy label.  

Do come and join us with your Girly or Shabby Chic cards for the challenge.  It's on for three weeks, so plenty of time to have a play.

Hello Dawn,
You have done well, even though you say it is not your genre. I know how difficult it is to engage the brain to think differently, so I can appreciate how this would have been a Challenge for you, but this is why we do these Challenges; to stretch ourselves and to learn when we embark on a new style. The composition is good as is the design, your focal image is cute as, so all in all a great card.
Smiles:)
