I LOVE SHABBY CHIC....


I quickly decided that my favorite Saleabration set is Sweet Summer and I sorta overlooked this Bliss set.....but once I started to play with it, it's a close 2nd for me....I totally LOVE that big stamp I used as background here. :) SWEET!! So last week I felt like I cheated because when I got my card all done which was supposed to feature a wheel, you could hardly even SEE the wheel. Well this time, I am suffering MAJOR guilt - look at those pearl stick pins I stuck in there on my card that was made especially for the SU ONLY blog.....yikes- I blew it again!! CONTRABAND! Sorry everyone!! But anyway, it's not really such a big deal. I say get over it. Next time I'll do better. :) I still like this card. :) CONTRABAND OR NO CONTRABAND. It wouldn't be an issue except that I made it for the SUO CHALLENGE BLOG....duh. oh well, isn't perfection wonderful???? Happy Stamping everyone!!

Oh this card is absolutely stunning! I love all the pierced border mixed with the gorgeous stitching. The Cat Stevens song playing while I was drooling over this beautiful card was the perfect backdrop. Love it!

Gosh, Bliss was my favorite stamp set the moment I laid eyes on it.. isn't funny how we all view and perceive stamps so differently? Love this card, Karen, it's stunning, sweet, and beautiful... and it uses bliss, LOL!

Lovely card! Did you heat emboss the background image? If not, I'm wondering what kind of white ink was used as I can't seem to find one that I'm happy with. Thanks! laura j
