Shabby chic...

Hello hope you are all well? Not so nice here again today but boy is it warm! Think we may be having some thunder storms soon, which is a nightmare as my westie bobby hates them, he howls and tries to find somewhere to hide, dont blame him really!

It may not be sunny outside here but Ive got a lovely summery card to share today, which is also quite shabby chic in style, my favourite. Ive used a pretty sitting Tilda and her car, she looks like she is just trying to decide where to head off for a day of fun. The paper ive used is vintage whimsy by the girls paperie called cottage vine. Its just gorgeous. Ive cut out the bunting with a whimsy stamps die, I love this, Im always trying to find an excuse to use it lol!! I was actually thinking yesterday when I was making it, I could make a little bunting strip to hang along the montitor of the computer!! not sure if OH would like it but I would !
Ive also used a magnolia swirl and just a few roses and a cherry blossom. A lot less embellishments than I would normally use but I really wanted the paper to be seen.

Hope you like it.
Also wanted to say a huge thank you to my newest followers, I hit the 30 mark today so am very pleased indeed!! lol !!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges,

I've just discovered your wonderful blog and cards from many hours of blog hopping .... This card is absolutely gorgeous and I just love how Tilda is perched on her car lol. I've become a follower of your blog and I have to say that its's nice to find someone who uses prismas to colour instead of copics, promarkers etc to colour. Looking forward to many gorgeous creations. Julie ....
