Blue and Black Card

Hi All,

Hope you are all doing great.Its been three months since I posted on the blog, I had been crafting, but somehow did not participate in challenges.Ok, onto my new card that I created.Its a shabby chic card. I wanted to make this card, the moment I came to know about Izzy, wondering who Izzy is? She is the cutie image on the card. I bought this one from Di's Digistamps , you can find lots of cuties there. I have coloured her with Distress Inks, did a lot of selt training with colouring of DI's. Hope, I have improved, and yes lots to improve more on.Done some layering using pattern papers, using it after a long time.I have also added lace of which very little is seen, I wonder how shabby chic card designers so gracefully do this sytle. I feel one needs to have more patience in arranging them to achieve perfection.

Here is a pic of the full card,
