I'm so excited to be a part of the Card Style Mystery Blog Hop!
When I was first asked if I wanted to work on several shabby and vintage cards for the book, I was thrilled! Hello, creating shabby cards is my favorite thing to do. I spent some time looking through my favorite galleries and thinking about all of the elements I'd want to include in my card. The only challenge I faced, was narrowing it down. (Yeah, I had enough ideas to do a whole book!)
I love all things soft, worn, pastel-y ( I know, not a word), glittery, flowery and vintage. This is why I love the shabby style so much. And I love that it's such a hot trend in papercrafting right now.
So, the purpose of today's blog hop is twofold. You get more inspiration and you get the chance to win an awesome prize package.
First for the inspiration:
Kraft and cream are my favorite shabby/vintage colors. I added some Prima paper, a MME tag, Melissa Frances heart, and Jenni Bowlin die cut paper. I painted the MM frame and added glitter to it. The pin, button and trim are all vintage.
So, where can you get this awesome book? Right HERE.
And you know there has to be a prize package included in this blog hop.
Be sure to check out the Moxie Fab World Blog as well as the Paper Crafts Blog to see a peek of what you are trying to win!
Now, it's time for you to leave me. But don't be sad, because I'm sending you to one of my most favorite scrappy friends. I'm sure you'll love her card and her post will leave you smiling!
But, before you go, leave a comment for a chance to win. Let me know what your favorite 'shabby/vintage' supply is. And comment on the other 17 designers' blogs as well as PC and MFW blogs for a total of 20 chances! (All comments must be posted by Sunday, July 18. Winners will be announced on both the Moxie Fab World and Paper Crafts Connection blogs on Tuesday, July 20.)
Thanks for stopping by! Now head on over to THE NEXT MYSTERY BLOGGER!

My favorite shabby supply right now is using hand dyed seam binding.
I recently found a HUGE bag of vintage laces and hand crocheted doilies at an estate sale. The doilies are not in great shape, so I don't mind cutting them up to give them a new life!

Beautiful card, great deatails! I love using dollies!
I don't have a favorite shabby chic/vintage supply because it's a style I have lots of trouble creating in my cards and scapbook pages. I love your elegant version of it and I envy you for your ability to achieve it. Maybe one of these days I'll "get" it. lol Just for the record, I'm working on doing collage, too.
Chic/Vintage is just a style i haven't delved into; it's so intimidating!
I just love your card. It is so beautiful and shabby/vintage for sure. Thank you for sharing this wonderful card with us. Have a great weekend.
I love your shabby chic style. Great Job!
Beautiful! Love the rose!
Oh my heart....just gorgeous! I love the craft and cream together.
Your style is lovely! I'd love the opportunity to win some goodies! Thanks for sharing!
I love the mix of textures and shapes, and the overall fun quality that the tension between elegant and shabby creates. Takes real skill to put all these elements together. Bravo!
Wonderful card! I love to destress my papers.
My style isn't really shabby chic so I don't really have an opinion regarding it just yet.
Love your shabby style - I'm hopeless at it myself!
I'm not much of a shabby chic card marker myself, but I do love the little stick pins
I love Melissa Frances's vintage products the most! And gorgeous card, btw!

I lvoe to see the shabby vintage style and I love to try all styles. This is probably the one I do the least though. When I do try shabby vintage I love to use old sewing items my grandmother handed down to me.
I love to use bits of lace, trim and ribbon when in the shappy chic mode.Inking and distressing are important too.Your card was outstanding. Thanks
Gorgeous card! My fave "shabby" supply is vintage lace. I love the look of it and try not to hoard it!
I love the lace embellishments!
I love your beautiful card and I love the shabby chic/vintage look with all the beautiful layers of lace, glitter, ribbon and the soft colors. But for some reason I really haven't tried it. Guess I should pull out my lace and ribbon and try to create a vintage card.
Shabby Chic is outside my comfort zone, though I think it is beautiful, just like your card. I think I love the ribbons best...they are just so pretty!
I love lots of stuff:) ...seem ti be drawn to the ribbon roses lately
Beautiful card! That vintage flower button is gorgeous!
I like using prima and graphic 45 when I am doing something vintage/shabby.

Such a pretty card! My favorite shabby chic/vintage supply would have to be ribbon. Got to have lots of ribbon!
I love my vintage ribbon/lace I found at my local antique mall - LOVE IT!
I love the look of old book paper to give something a vintage style...
I LOVE your card. I'm really not good at this style although I have access to infinite amounts of vintage-y supplies at my local thrift store so I'd really love to try more often....thanks for the inspiration!
Shabby's not necessarily my style 'cause I just can't seem to go there, but your cards are just lovely!
Wow you sure do know how to vintage it up! Love the card!
The thing I use the most is distress ink. I really like the worn edges, too.
I adore your work, Anabelle, and have followed your blog for quite a while now. You inspire me. My favorite shappy chic/vintage element would have to be delicate lace, the kind that looks crocheted. Love that stuff! Thanks for sharing!
My favorite shabby/vintage supply is probably distress ink. Love your cards.
I'm not so great at shabby either - but seeing your awesome creations (all the way back to Self-Addressed) really inspires me to try it on occasion.
My fave shabby chic tool is my Tim Holtz distressing tool.
I have to go with ribbon, lace and Antique Linen Distress ink. Your card is beautiful!!

I love your card. I also like light colored cards. I am not great at shabby-chic but I try anyway. I am trying to use up lace that I acquired during my sewing days. Some of it is very vintage.

I love distress inks and kraft cardstock. I gravitate towards broken china and tumbled glass distress inks. I really love your card. My style is not shabby and vintage - but I admire the style so much

Love it! Gorgeousness!

I have a hard time with vintage - this is gorgeous! Love all the sparkle!
Oh! Love this!! Very nice!
I don't really have a favorite shabby vintage supply because that is the hardest thing for me to do. I can't make cards or layouts with that style even though I love it. I know someone who would fall in love with your card right away and probably frame it. :)
Great card! I love all of the bling & the lace.
