Gorjuss shabby chic challenge card ..

I made this card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge  This week is a sketch by Kathy and the please include was "shabby chic " 
Ive used nestibilities for the Gorjuss image mat and distressted and inked the edges..
The circle mat is also a nestie , but i have punched out circles on the scallops using a cropadile.
The sentiment is a whimsy stamp.
The gorjuss stamp was coloured using copics.

Ive simply decorated the inside of the card to match and used my fiskers threading water punch.The back is also decorated simply too - it just does'nt seem balanced for me otherwise !

Now since ive been blogging i have manage to accumulate rather alot of cards !
so ive decided to sell some .If you wish to purchase this card it also comes with a matching 
card box .
£5.00 which includes the post and packing.

Now i must dash as it was a toss up between posting this and watching "Desparate Housewives " (which im addicted to ) I missed last weeks so im having a double dose this week instead !!!
