Crochet Away - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

Well, it's my last GDT post with the very talented ladies over at Daring Cardmakers and you can see what they've made here.  I've thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and above all being inspirational. The month has gone so fast!

The theme for this challenge was to take inspiration from crochet. I decided to go shabby chic for this one!


I used a crochet doily as well as papers with printed crochet doilies. I love embellishments as I'm still a little girl at heart so used twine and a resin rose this time. The edges were distressed with scissors and then inked with distress ink.

The card is actually for a couple I've known for many years - a true love story! 

Enjoy your weekend,
Shabneez xxx
