In The Spotlight and GD for Anything Goes Challenge Blog

And a very Happy Tuesday morning to you all.

I got so excited when asked by Tamara to GD for Anything Goes Challenge Blog it took me almost a week to get this card done cause Shabby-Chic and Vintage are not really my strengths.  I do love how this turned out though and I got everything I wanted on it without a lot of bling. Yep, I know, no stickles or glitter, can you believe it......  I think I might be seeing a little more Shabby-Chic/Vintage style in my designs from now on.  I'd sure love to know what you think of this, especially if you're a SC/V fan.

If you haven't guessed it by now the theme at Anything Goes for this fortnightly challenge is SHABBY-CHIC/VINTAGE and I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge.  I hope you've found some inspiration here that will encourage you to share your creation with us.  I'd so love seeing your designs.

Here is the inside of the card.
