It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog!


Today's theme chosen by our very talented Jules is:
SHABBY CHIC
 Here is what I've come up with.  
Now, I must admit, I'm never really sure what is considered Shabby Chic so I went to Pinterest and did a search on the topic ... found some beautiful creations & ideas there and also found this sweet sentiment panel which I thought would tie in perfectly with the pieces I had already pulled together in hopes I was on the right path.  LOL

Another wonderful thing that came about while putting this card together was the fact that I could use some of the many bits & bobs that are laying around on my work tables.   i.e.  The corner die cut, the butterflies, and the Heartfelt flower petals that I've had for a couple of years now.  Just needed to add some ink to tie in with my design, do a little shaping and viola!


 Did you notice the embossing in the background?
I have had this beautiful Cuttlebug Anna Griffin EF called ROSA for quite awhile now and thought it looked like it would fit the theme so that was my starting point!  I hated to cover it up with the sentiment panel but I was afraid it was too 'bare' if I didn't use the sentiment.
