Shabby Chic

Iam late, iam late :-)
My card for today was made using a sketch that i made. I wanted to go fairly simple because we all have lots to do at this time of the year AND since this Holiday stamp release had so many sitting Magnolias i thought it would be giving you plenty of choices to pick your favorite Magnolia. On my sample card i wanted to show how versatile the stamps are. By choosing dark colored Designer papers and lots and lots of distressing and coloring Tildas dress green i think this card would also be nice for someone who is not sooo into the very cute style. Many of the Christmas images work all year round.
now for the supplies: Tilda Christmas Collection 2008
Papers: i believe it is Basic Grey (?) and Stampin up Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Stampin up rope, Laundry Line tag, Velvet ribbon (forgot), Making Memories, Prima Marketing
tools: Nestabilities insert grin.. gift from Carole (hehe. all my pretty stuff is from her!!! tomorrow i will show you something i get from Carole i could not make a card without it. I use it on EVERY card!) Distresser, Sewing Machine
Make sure you check out the other very talented designers super adorable cards! I know that Suzanne and Cheryl have their cards on their blogs posted. Thank you so much ladies - i love your cards.. i can not wait to see what you come up with. And here is the sketch: (also perfect to use up all your little pieces of scraps you have created over the years :-)

I am just in awe of your cards Claudia, this one is so beautiful, so 'matchy matchy'...you know what I mean :-) The distessing looks fabulous, as does Tilda, who you have coloured perfectly...in true Claudia style. Might have to order some of that SU rope! Love your sketch too.
Have a good day my friend.
Carole :-)
