Guest designing at Top Tip Tuesday

I was so excited when Leanne offered me the chance to be a guest designer at Top Tip Tuesday.  I love the variety of challenges and of course, the wonderful tips from the DT and participants each week.  This week the theme is Wedding/Anniversary, and I made an anniversary card:

And a little closeup:

I think they forgot to add my project up on the blog... but anyways, I had lots of fun making it.

I've always struggled a bit with shabby style and I've been playing around a lot lately to get a better feel for it. I'm really happy with how this came together.  I used:  Kraft cardstock, Pink Paislee 'Butterfly Garden' paper, Prima 'Essentials 9' flowers, Jo Sonja's paint. 

I'm entering my card at:
