April Showers at An Oldie But Goodie

 Good morning. What's happened to the glorious sunshine we have been spoilt with recently :o(
I've heard that there's snow forecast later this week!!!! Anyways whatever the weather it won't spoil our trip to Centre Parcs at the weekend - I'm soooo looking forward to it :o)

So it's Tuesday and it's been 2 weeks since our last challenge at 

and this fortnight our very own lovely Lisa has picked the theme 


I have gone for a Shabby Chic style for my card this time and I quite like how it has turned out 
I hope you do to :o)

I have used a very neglected Sarah Kay image - coloured with PM's and then cut her out.
The stunning Design Papers were a Mother's Day gift from Jack from My Crafty Heart '5th Avenue' by Melissa Frances - available here 

Sentiment created on PC - chopped up and edges inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink

This also used:
Martha Stewart PATP - Scoll Lace
Tim Holtz Tattered Florals (love these dies at the mo')
Adhesive pearls - stash
Lace from Pretty Little Ribbons - available here
Memory Box Dragonfly - from My Crafty Heart - available here
Memory Box Macarena Corner die - from My Crafty Heart - available here
