MilkCoffee Showcase – Shabby Chic or Vintage

Hello, how’s things?

I’m here to show my DT card for the new MilkCoffee Showcase  and our theme is Shabby Chic or Vintage.

Now I have to admit that this is not a style I’ve readily embraced so you’ll have to forgive the rather ‘rough and ready’ not-too-sure-what-I-was-doing design!

Now my mojo has all but mo-gone at the moment; I believe it took its passport so I may be in trouble!! Still I managed to create something that I don’t hate and it is all thanks to the wonderfully elegant Tiffany Playing Violin (love her) available here I think she is perfect for a vintage theme with her violin and gorgeous gown (and her ridiculously tiny waist – I bet she’s never had a Big Mac!) J she's never had a Magnum either!
Love, love, love Halo Glitter!
Stamps: Music script by Kanban – scroll and sentiment by Katy Sue Designs
Dies: Tattered Lace foliage
Paper/Card: LOTV ‘Antebellum’ & ‘Pressed in Time’ – Kraft - vellum
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils – ‘Vintage Photo’ DI
Others: Gold Fran-tage & Halo Glitter – Paper roses, pearl flowers and flat-backed pearls from The Hobby House – wooden bird from stash

Check out all the amazing designs by my talented team mates here and visit the MilkCoffee shop to ogle at all their gorgeous images.  And don’t forget to join in the current challenge on the challenge blog which is Mother’s Day/For a Special Lady

See ya!

Colourful hugs
