  9. These are beautiful cards, Kathryn! I don't know that shabby chic is my "thang" either but, like you, I do enjoy dabbling in it now and again. There's just something about pearls, old lace and roses that strikes a chord with me. I even like to mix parts of the shabby chic style with more current trends to make for some interesting designs. Good luck on the DT application. They'll be lucky to have you!
