Shell Collecting Girl Card (Cute As A Button image)

This card is for sale:     $8 AUS       $6 US     5 EUR      4 GBP
(see bottom of post for how to buy and postage info)

Hi Crafty Friends,

How lovely is this image from Cute as a Button? I have distressed and inked the edges of most of the papers and embossed the bluey/lilac paper with one of my embossing folders that has just been sitting around collecting dust, not good when I just "HAD" to have it so badly 6 months ago! Do you also do that, buy something and then not use it?

 I have used a combo of pearls and the lilac flower are all from Flourish with a Bling
