Shabby chic for a change!

Hello Everyone.
I made this card to enter two Challenges;

Sketch Saturday #160





 I made a shabby chic card as I had not made one for awhile.

 And over at allsorts the recipe is

3 papers. 2 Ribbons. 1 Flower. 

Week 108 - 3-2-1 at allsorts. 


I followed the sketch quite well I thought. My colour palette is the earthy Brown and warm serene turquoise with a hint of pink, it is  subtle but it creates a soft effect, which when viewed as a whole is pleasing to the eye.

Well I think so anyway.

Butterfly,Ribbon and lace were a gift from Rosie. (thankyou). The Flower is one from my stash. Papers are a mix; one is 5th avenue, one is a  watercolour and the other I have no idea.

All were from the scrap basket.
I spent a most enjoyable two days making this card, I still love this genre very much.
