Girlie Grunge Card & Tutorial by ~ Nadia Cannizzo

Hey there everyone. Donna Salazar Designs' signature style is "girlie grunge" and today I wanted to share with you a card and a quick tutorial I made while trying to stay true to this look. In Donna's words, her Girlie Grunge look is something like "..blending contrasting elements" . So a little like blending soft and romantic, with darker colours, or distressing with soft lace. Similar to what I have done in my card below. 
I hope I did OK Donna :))

Did you know that Donna Salazar has a YouTube Channel HERE as well as her Girlie Grunge ning site HERE with a gallery full of inspirational projects from the Design Team and fans alike. 

If you are an avid Facebook user, you can keep up with everything on her Facebook Fan Page HERE

OK so here is my card for your inspiration..

Now instead of showing you closeups, here is a quick video I made while creating this card. It is only 3 minutes long.
