A Bit Shabby......

Yesterday was CAS now I am back to my favourite type of cards - Shabby! I treated myself to some new papers this week and they are just so gorgeous I have had trouble cutting into them to be honest. Today's card is made using My Minds Eye Lost and Found collection. I think it is easily my most favourite set of papers EVER! And I have bought a lot of paper in all my cardmaking years (haven't we all?) These are 6 x6 so perfect for cardmaking, and all double sided.

I made this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Shabby Chic and the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge - free and Easy, using an old favourite stamp Whispers.  I added some beige seam binding and a pretty button too. I saved all scraps of paper for making a tag at some stage - they were just too pretty to throw away!
