I just wanted to say I love your blog. It makes me dream !
I'm not good at shabby chic style, but I'm fond of it !
Here is my very first participation on your blog.
I made my best to participate.
I'm not sure my card will create what you call the " Wow " effect, but I had fun at making it, and it's the most important thing ( I must say I'm better at sewing dolls and other projects, and at polymer clay making, but I love card making too !).
Have a great sunday
