Shabby Chic Anya

This week's challenge at Simon Says is
'shabby chic'.
I'm not quite sure what that means, but
I thought I would have a go anyway.
I inked the edges of my papers and used some scissors
to distress them,
and I'm quite pleased with the finished look.
Today's deliberate mistake, was when I stuck my stamp
down on the scalloped card, completely off centre...
you should have heard me scream!!
I have had to try and stick another piece of card down the
right hand side, so don't look too closely at that bit..lol*

Recipe:
Stamp - The Greeting Farm, Miss Anya Dressy,
coloured with copics.
It's my first time using this stamp, isn't it just adorable?
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus.
'Dream' text, downloaded from mel stampz
You really should check out Mel's blog, she has the most amazing
collection of projects, tutorials and templates.
Card edged with lace fiskars punch
Card candy and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
Charm from my stash.
