Shabby Chic .... or just shabby :)

Hi :)  I have spent nearly all night on this card!  It is WAY past my bedtime.  Firstly I had to research Shabby Chic as I had no idea what it was and then I coloured my image.  And of course I didn't have any 'pastel' papers to compete the look I wanted this is what I ended up with .....

 I have used the gorgeous Lil Willow from Tickled Pink Stamps and coloured her in copics.  I'm really happy with her hair .... wasn't an easy one to do ... !

Some nice papers, a bit of faux stitching, some spica pen on the flower petals on the papers (that you can't see in the photos) and some flowers stuck down with some foam tape to add some 'lift' and done.

So now I must go to bed!!

Thanks for stopping by .... and goodnight :)
