Shabby Chic meets Monday with Magnolia

Hi ya friends,
WOW! It has been raining like crazy here in So Cal. Good-bye 75 degree weather :( Well, today I have a card for 3 challenges:
{Simon Says Challenge: Shabby Chic Style
{Just Magnolia Challenge: A Thank You card
{MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge; Sketch 122

                               (I flipped the sketch for my card :)

Here it is:

Here's a peek of the inside:

I don't think the Shabby Chic style is for me. It's so muted & I like color. I used my fav Tilda (mini-me) again. Sorry, I do have other Tildas, but this one just screamed Shabby Chic. I also used some of my fav papers from the Lily Kate Collection. I have been hoarding these papers for SO LONG & refused to use them b/c they're just so pretty. But, I made a resolution to use my pretty papers & I did :) I only wept for a little bit while I cut into the papers :(  Don't judge me! I know lots of you have done the same thing. So hoarders of the world UNITE!!! Let's use our pretty things together :)

Only 3 days until CHA!!!! I'm like that old commercial where the woman has her hands on the glass door saying, "Open! Open! Open!" ---> that's me right now!

Thanks for peekin' at my triple scoop card. Ummm, that reminds me I have some gelato in the freezer callin' my name.
Gotta Go!

  1. Your card is perfect for the shabby chic style with the soft pink and lace. Wonderful job.

  2. Shabby Chic may not be your style, but you did a beautiful job with it. I just love how you make the insides of your cards "pretty" too.

  3. WOW...Stunning card... Its so beautiful...I love everything about it!..Glitter Bee hugs, Ronnie

  4. I'm flying my "United Hoarders of America" flag because I'm a citizen of that group too....but I will think long and hard about using some of my favorite paper....Way to create out of your "style" zone....that is hard to do...

  5. Karli- this is absolutely gorgeous! The inside is as beautiful as the outside...

  6. Beautiful, you do shabby chic well, she is perfect! Love the lace embellishments, too. I have trouble using some of that lovely paper, too! Don't know what I'm saving it for though?!

  7. I tend to hoard my pretties too...paper, beads and material! LOL, what a mess! Your card is beautiful!

  8. so pretty! now I have that Open Open Open thing in my head!

  9. So pretty and I love her necklace!

    you're going to CHA?! Can you hear me gnashing my teeth with envy LOL!

  10. Love your card. It's very pretty - very feminine - perfect for girls - big and little! And your coloring is fabulous!

  11. oh my goodness, this is so pretty! how I love her necklace :)

  12. Fabulous card :-) The image is gorgeous and the papers and embellies are fab :-)
