Let's Get Shabby challenge #43 Antoinette Birthday card

I came across this challenge blog just the other dayLet's Get Shabby. Now that's my kind of challenge and suits me to a shabby T.

The image inspiration put me in mind of some paper I have from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I paired the paper with Inspired by Stamping stamps both inside and out, and distressed the heck out of everything. The IBS set I used hereAll Year Wishes II—has some nice little flourishes that come along with it. I used one on the tag's end.

I even shabbied up the inside of the card. The inside IBS stamp is from the Big Wishes set.

And here's the inspiration photo.


Stamps—Inspired by Stamping Big Wishes and All Year Wishes II
Dies—Artemio, Die-Namics
Paper—Folio, Cardmaking and Papercraft, vintage sheet music
Embellishements—ribbon, button, twine, flowers, stick-pin
