Lets Get Shabby

I found Lets Get Shabby blog via my 'Maxine Melange' newsletter so I had a peek - wow, there is some amazing inspiration and talent - beautiful work!!!!

This is my LO for challenge #16

There were 3 parts to the challenge, first you had to choose your kitchen - I chose kitchen 2 and then use 3 dominant colours from it - light pink, darker pink/red and green. A piece of fabric - behind my cluster of flowers is some pink tulle. Lastly you had to include 2 die cut shapes - my title 'Breathtaking' and the pink circle (sassafras lass die cut from my stash)are my 2 die cut shapes.

I painted some gesso over my green patterned paper to tone it down as it was a bit too bright, there is lots of stitching - not sure if you can see this, yummy Dusty Attic pieces and lots of gorgeous flowers!!!

Thank you for popping by and have a fab weekend!
