A “Shabby” Heart

Hello friends,

I was quite busy in my craft room this week. I managed to do a second guest designer card for In The Pink Challenge – Valentine’s Day. I did this one in the shabby style with scraps of paper and playing with dies and punches. The beautiful paper roses arrived about two weeks ago from Thailand and I just love them to bits. The hardest job to do on this card was to glue the pearls! Hope you like my “shabby “ Valentine’s heart.

Challenges:
