Pretty in shabby chic peach!

I made this some time ago whilst in my peach phase but wasn't sure about it so never got around to posting it! I'm still feeling dizzy and fuzzy in the head so I've not made a card in the last few days. I have been taking my daughter to playgyms and taken some colouring with me. I got some funny looks - a grown woman sat colouring! You know that 'are you some sort of whack job?' kinda look! The thing is, I only took a few of my pens so all my images are blue and pink!!!!! Genius!

So, back to the card. I made the easel with the scalloped circle grand nesties. The utterly scrummy papers are from Pion Designs - I hate chopping into expensive paper, it gives me the cold sweats!!!! The image and cute as a button sentiment are from LOTV. The beautiful organza rose is from Creative Expressions - I think they are now discontinued! I have no idea why - they are soooo lovely. The leaves are from the spellbinders foliage die set and the hearts are from the Cheery Lynn heart doily die set.

The lovely Squirrel has given me some tips on colouring with distress inks so that's going to be my new challenge. I'd always wanted to give it a go but when I found the gallery on Squirell's blog it was the kick up the bum I needed to give it a go. If you get a chance to check Squirrel's blog and gallery it's WELL worth a visit - she gives proper advice to the beginner on where to start. Thank you Miss Squirrel - you're a top bird and not even close to being a whack job!!!!
