  1. Hi, Leeann! It's a lovely shabby card! I have a hard time with the style also, but have learned that we should always let our own "touch" define the style rather than let the style define our touch! This is beautiful, and I have pinned it.

    It's been fun looking throughout your blog at other designs, too! I have become your newest google follower!

    Now to put on my other hat. Thank you for joining us at Sparkle N Sprinkle this month! I hope you will submit more of your pretty cards to the challenge in the future! hugs, Donna {Creative Smiles}
