Shabby Chic

Thanks for all the awesome cards done for our team dare last week, Down by the Sea. It was nice to do a summer card as here in New Zealand it's starting to get warmer now.

This week it's my turn to set a dare (Tanya Leigh) and I am into Shabby Chic at the moment so thought this would be a great dare.
Look through your stash and found all those bits and pieces you can use or even ask your Nana or Grandma for some bits. Old lace, buttons, bling, flowers etc and make a mess and see what you come up with.

Check out what the design team have been up to below, we hope our cards will give you some inspiration to get started on your own.

Please don't forget to come back and let us know where we can see you creations, we do love to see what you've been making.

PetraB said...

Hallo Kathy,

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. This is so encouraging as I am still a novice and apprentice in the world of cardmaking. There is so much to learn and it is so different world from what I usually do even as hobby as I am a bit obsessed with baking :-)

I came across the Daring Cardmaker blog by chance and I like the creations a lot. And I like that the challenges are not linked to any products you have to use but it gives you a chance to be creative and use what you have at hand.
Yes, I would like to participate regularly to the challenges, I am looking forward to the next one.
Many thanks for all the work you and the other members of the team put into the blog and the challenges.
