How to Add PERSONALITY to Your Creations!

hehe...let's get to that in a bit...

Today we have a fun challenge at Lollipop Crafts. Zulma is our hostess for the week and the theme is Shabby Chic or vintage.

Well, my card is not very vintage-y looking but I tried. LOL All I did was ink up the edges. LOL I was going to add some paint on the edges but changed my mind.

Which One Wednesday at TGF is a color challenge this week, NO PINK. I think I did pretty good with the challenge since I normally use a lot of pink. hehe Miss Anya looks mighty cute in blue too! LOL

So how to add personality to your creations? Why, adding a fun charm! Some people call it baubles or dangles. Whatever you call them, they do add a touch of bling, sparkle and for sure personality to any of your projects!

hehe You guess it! These charms are available at my Etsy Shop!

Well, that's all I have for now. Have a good one everyone!
