LOC Shabby Boutique

Hello - it is great to see you today.  I have a very quick card to show you today, using some of those 'ever growing' scraps!  I created this card some time ago so I had some projects to post while I am recovering from my eye surgery!  Thank you all once again for your lovely messages and comments on my Blog - I am doing really well and will be back on all cylinders very soon - but in the meantime.....

I have coloured the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet art stamp set with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen - this is a very easy image to colour and always makes a pretty card - now that has to be good!  LOL!

I have cut ir out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Labels 14 - I have  cut two different sizes and popped the image up onto the largest one with foam tape.  I have to wonder what I did before Nesties - they certainly make card making easy - my Wish List just keeps growing - I am sure you know the feeling!

Some lace and pearls and it is finished - it doesn't get much easier than that!!

You can see more of my projects in my Layers of Color Gallery, while you are there make sure you check out the other Design Team galleries there is so much inspiration waiting to be discovered, we are thrilled that Layers of Color is a Spellbinders Preferred Product Partner.

This card is for the following Challenges:
Color Create - Pastels
Paper Play - Distressing (I used ink)
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
