Shabby meets Drips and Drops

Hello Everyone,
The Challenge over at Country View Crafts-(Drips and Drops) is just about coming to an end, and so far we have had some wonderful inspiration not only from my fellow Dt's, but also from our entries. I have one last card to entice you to join in, it is my favourite genre Shabby-Chic and I have included some mixed media.
 I may upset a few Shabby-Chic enthusiasts in doing so, but I think it works wonderfully well.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

I enjoy making these cards as it always makes me feel as if I have accomplished something.

The process in making the Mixed Media Background.

The previous photos show the stages of applying the paints, below I have dry embossed and added white drips and drops.
Now for the Shabby part.....
....and the Glamour
Marrying them together.
Front and finished view.

Remember you can click on the pics for a more detailed look.

And I am entering this into:
 Simon Says Monday Challenge -'Anything Goes' .
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge -'Think Pink .'

Thank you for the visit, you can find the CVC challenge HERE.
