Pssst...my secret is...*winks*


Thanks

Thanks for your guesses about my secret in yesterday's post...*LOL*. It's craft-related of course [Janice...*sending air punch*] and Erin got it right...*winks* It's related to this post back in March...how about a little sneak?


Will you join me next week? A week-long of upcycled projects! :)

Back to my card: I've been swooning over this trend of using white paint/gesso on the edges of a card to make it appear shabby chic. Guess I went overboard, huh? *winks*

I'm entering this card for the monochromatic challenge at The Shabby Tea Room (1 colour + neutrals)...mine is pink! :)

Patterned paper: Girls' Paperie. Embossing folder: Cuttlebug script. Rose trim: American Crafts. Canvas letters: Prima. Distress ink: Antique Linen. Others: wrinkle ribbon, vintage embellishment.

P/s: One more day to play along with my guest Alice's stitching challenge!
