Shabby Chic Is My Kryptonite!

So it is time for another challenge at Meljen's Designs.  The theme this week is shabby chic.  For some reason I struggle with shabby chic almost as much as I struggle with masculine cards  There is something about the style that I just can't get my head around!  I even had to do a search on shabby chic cards just to get a good idea of what I wanted to do.

I used Peaceful Heart Quilt Square and used some ink to distress it after coloring the heart with Copics.  It is popped up slightly from the die and the die is popped up from the back of the card.  I made the distressed looking flowers.  Can you guess what I made them out of?!  Nope!  A used dryer sheet!  Yes indeed, a used dryer sheet spritzed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.  I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.  I made the "hat pin" on the right as well as the tassel.  All in kryptonite didn't hurt me too badly, I think. =)

Card measures 5.5" x 5.5"
