Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Shabby Chic

Woohoo!! Time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week is one of my favourite challenges - shabby chic!! I do love this style although sadly I seem to be doing it less and less and I don't really know why! All my cards used to be this style - it felt so good to make my card like this again that I think I shall be changing my style back to my original one more often!! I'm also entering my card into Paperplay challenge who would like to see distressing. I used a scrap of paper from my stash that had been used on another card and taken off so it was perfect for a shabby chic look as it had some torn patches where the glue had been! I think it is by BoBunny but I'm not sure. The edges were distressed with walnut stain distress ink.

I coloured Tilda and her little bunny friend with copics and tore the edges of the image mat before inking with walnut stain.
I added some gorgeous wide lace that was a gift from my Whiff of Joy teamie Tanja and I was really brave and used some of my precious Tim Holtz ribbon - LOVE this tattered flower one!
I added some Prima flowers and a blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts together with some die cut leaves from a doohickey die. The large button came out of the washer when it was repaired LOL hence it's distressed look!!! The small pearl button is from The Hobby House.
I cut out the cute butterfly from the Magnolia spring kit and popped it on the corner of the image.
Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the stunning cards from my teamies! Thanks for looking! x
