MFT is lookin' Shabby!

So when I saw the MFT Guest DT contest for this month was Shabby Chic. Now, I'm not really one for shabby chic, but I though I would try and play along. I definately got the shabby part, just not so sure about the chic!!

I had started coloring this Fred the Bear image on Friday night, and so I thought I'd stick with him. Then, I pulled out an old pair of jeans I had been saving to use for cards and ran them through my Cuttlebug with my rolled rose and mini rolled rose die-namics. I used this week's sketch for my layout, and distressed all the edges with my scissors (I can't find my distressing's somewhere on my desk but I have no idea where with the giant piles I currently have!)

I added a little of the new MFT Baker's twine, and took a happy birthday sentiment from another Pure Innocence set I had on my desk and voila...a shabby (chic?) card!


  1. This is so cool! The bear is adorable, and I love what you did with the blue jeans! I've been saving some to recycle onto projects, too. This is great inspiration.

  2. Ooooo, JAAAAANA!!! I am in LOVE with those denim roses..LOVE I TELL YOU!!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
