Shabby Chic !!

Hello everyone....

Good to be back, even though the break was jus a few days. Here is my first try @ shabby chic style. I followed a post by Ujjwal Goel on how to do it. Also this card is inspired by Archana Bhurke's card. Sorry i couldnt find the exact link to both (read it as too lazy :( )

Anyways here is the card

Here is a lot of firsts for me in this card. Used Distress Ink, yay! ya got my first couple of distress inks, its soo soo juicy. Even the Flower button & sentiment is done using the Distress ink (Vintage photo ofcourse!). Really loved how this card has turned out, many corrections to do, but still i love it.
I even tried distressing the corners of the pattern paper with a scissors & directly applied Distress ink. The felt flowers are handmade, and i have added ribbon & pearls (wats shabby chic without it). Nothing else about the card.

Supplies used
Card Stock- Fabriano
PP- from Itsy Bitsy
Buttons- Local Buy
Distress ink- Vintage photo
Ribbon & Pearl- from stash
