Shabby Chic Attempt

Wow! This school year has kept me REALLY busy! It's been a long time since I have posted. I haven't had much time for crafting lately, but I did get a chance to make this card for my monthly Stampin' Up! group that I attend at my upline's house.

This is my attempt at Shabby Chic! I know this has been a trend in scrapbooking and cardmaking, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I used the Smooch Spritz for the first time on a card and I really like this color. The Log Cabin has a bit of a gold shimmer to it and shimmer makes everything better right? I did not add a sentiment so that it could go in my stash and I could use it whenever I needed for whatever I needed. Let me know what you think!

Thanks for looking! :)
