Not too shabby

I made a card for a couple of challenges. One of the challenges is Simon Says - Shabby Chic. I love this style but it is not my style. I rarely create this way. I don't think I pull it off too well, but I am pleased with this card. For a shabby chic effect on this card, I did some sanding to the edged of my paper, some stitching, and put a corsage pin through the ribbon. I've used a stamp from Starving Artist. I have challenged myself to go through my stash and use the never used or rarely used stamps.

I also used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. For the Charisma Cardz challenge to use anything new, I've used my new label trio die.

Stamp: Starving Artist; sentiment- SeeD's
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, PXS
Tools: Nestabilities label trio die, prismacolor pencils
Accents: Button, ribbon, flower, corsage pin

Do you want this sunflower stamp? It has only been used this once and I've decided that it won't get much more use so I'm adding it to my blog candy. Please go here to enter.
