Shabby Chic

I seem to be in the mood for vintage-ish type cards these days, and I'm on a kick using my scissors to rough up the edges.  I bought this paper AGES ago and made a few cute little things with it, but it didn't make an appearance on any of my cards.  Fear not Beau Chateau!  You shall have your 15 minutes of fame.

One of the great things about Stampin Up's designer paper is that there are 12 designs.  One of the designs is actually the flowery branch from Elements of Style.  I wanted to use it, but not in the Marina Mist that the DSP has it in, so I pulled my faithful old friend off the shelf and made a Soft Suede background version instead (with roughed up edges too, of course).  It's really a minor detail, but I think the card would look stark without it.

Love this paper?  It's available as one of my shares.  Take a look here for details.
