A Sad Farewell

Hi all today is a sad time as it is the last challenge at 
Due to illness and family issues it as been decided that the blog will close.
I could not let this occasion pass without creating a final DT card
We have a choice of recipes for you:
No 1 - Distress, Buttons and Bows
No2 - Shabby Chic, Pearls and lace
No 3 - Vintage, Ribbons and Flowers.

I chose No 2 and have gone for the Shabby Chic look, I have used an image of Tilda.  The papers are from Joanna Sheen which I have had for absolute ages I have used black card to mount them and Tilda.  I have added some lace, pearls a TH Tattered Floral flower, a die cut and finally some MS punched butterflies.
I do hope that you will join in this final challenge at Creative Inspirations we would love to see you.
Hugs to all see you soon.
