It's Paperplay Challenge time again folks!  This week we're kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with a $15 store voucher.

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week, you were all amazing and oh, so talented!

Our theme this week is Shabby/Vintage, so I made this card for friends who moved house recently.

I tore the edge of the pink spotty paper agains the edge of a Fiskars Paper Shapers ruler that I've had for an absolute age.  I then lightly inked the edges and rolled 3 corners around the handle of  small paint brush for some dimension.  The striped flower is simply cut using a Tonic flower punch 3 times and embossed on the back using a large embossing tool to give it shape before layering it up with dimensional dots. I've added 3 words under the curled paper to signify what their new home will be centred around... to cherish and love their family!  The butterfly has left a gem trail on her journey flying to the top of the card.

I personally love the style of shabby chic come vintage look and was pleased at how this turned out.
