OK, it's time for a "Just Because" card and this is another Teddy Bo image, if you've been following my blog recently you'll know how much I love these images!
This one is a Valentines image but I think it works just as well for a Birthday Card too.
I love the blue and brown color combination, it lends itself so well towards the Vintage/Shabby Chic style and I'm really enjoying creating in that style at the moment.
Tomorrows project is also in this style so if you like it be sure to come back.
Also maybe now is the time to add yourself as a follower as I have just passed 90000 hits and am approaching 400 followers so it could be time for some blog candy!

I printed and colored 3 copies of the image and decoupaged the finished piece to give lots of definition. I distressed the edges of the mats and added chalk ink to enhance it even more. I even inked the antique style lace to add to the shabby chic style. Although this is a "cute" image I do think that it lends itself to the vintage feel that is so popular right now.
I absolutely love this line of images of can't wait to see all the new ones they keep coming out with.
