The Softer Side of Me

OK, I channeled the "inner vintage" in me through the amazing Linda Coughlin of The Funkie Junkie for our challenge this week over at Our Creative Corner!  Actually, I sort of cased THIS card of hers.

Our hostess this week is the amazingly talented, Susan Butler (aka Scrumplescrunch) and her theme this week is unequivocally 'Shabby Chic'. This means the shabby part of Vintage! The challenge requires you to pull elements together, the more old/worn and distressed the elements/images the better; think of muted colours, layers, roses, burlap and pearls. You do not have to use all of these elements.  The effect you are aiming for is a soft, warm palette.
Here is my design team card for some inspiration.  Check out the gorgeous Swedish designer papers from Pion design!  Linda carries them in her Zibbet store, The Funkie Junkie's Boutique.
 Please drop by Our Creative Corner and join in on our challenge.  Also, check out the awesome projects from the rest of the design team - they are amazing!
