Have you been wondering why....

 I've been practicing my Shabby Chic style?   Wonder no more!

The Really Reasonable Ribbon Vintage/Shabby Chic Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown begins today, April 15th.

That means it's time to throw down whatever you're doing and make something Vintage/Shabby Chic to enter this challenge.

Our great sponsor this week is

Really Reasonable Ribbon


Not only do they have wonderful ribbons, twines, tapes, etc. but they also have a monthly blog hop that is really fantastic.   

 Below is my DT card for the challenge.

I've used 2 Really Reasonable Ribbons for the bow.  

Rowena fish is a free digi from Digital DelightsThe tag, jar and lid stamps are from Sparkle and Sprinkle.  The jar was stamped with Momento ink on clear acetate.  There's a bit of sand and loose glitter at the bottom of the jar.  I used bling for bubbles, jute around the lid, a little burlap and a small piece of netting from the front of a potato bag* (which you can't really see in the photo) under the tag. The striped DP is fabric paper.  The flower was handmade using some old white sassy strands from CTMH and following this tutorial. I dirtied it up a bit with the dauber after I distressed the edges of the papers, tag and jar lid cover.

So that's my attempt at shabby/chic for today.

I'm going to enter it in these challenges:
Sparkle n Sprinkle April Challenge - Anything Goes 
613 Avenue Create Challenge #67 - Anything Goes/Twist-recycle something* 
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #80 - Not Square
One Stitch at a Time Challenge #208 - Use a Digi
The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge #67- All Creatures Great and Small
