365 Cards - #179 - Checkerboard Background

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was to have a checkerboard background and how you embellish the card is up to you. So I did my checkerboard background and then I used these new Bella chipboard shapes that I bought a few weeks ago down in Uralla near Tamworth. This is the first time I have used them and I was itching to use the crown and could not wait any longer. I used Ranger distress ink on both the heart and the crown and then embellished it with Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Okay short and sweet today for you. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes I think the antibiotics are doing their job but I hate taking them.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
