Pink GDT Take Two

Hello everyone, and welcome to Thursday.  In my book, you are welcome to normal Thursdays, as I certainly don't want them, never could get the hang of them.  But this Thursday is ok, as I am back as GDT at IN THE PINK for my second and final appearance.

This fortnight's theme is Vintage/Shabby Chic.

Regular readers will know that this will have sent me screaming and running for the hills, but it is meant to be a challenge, right?!

Anyhoo, here is my interpretation of the theme:


Stamp is an old Belles & Whistles - no name on the packet unfortunately
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are the new LOTV/Nitwits Dress Shoppe
Ownership of the lace die is lost in the mists of time
Sentiment is LOTV Vintage Labels
Pearls from stash

Actually, looking at it now, the sentiment is a bit squint, but for some reason a lot of my cards have been squint lately so you probably won't notice anything new there!

Thanks to Christine and Kat and the Pink Ladies for having me on board for a while, it has been a bubble of pink champagne girls!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I find vintage and shabby chic hard to do too, but when it works, like it does here it really works. This is a sweet image. Those prints make me think of Little House in the Prairie. Very nice!
