Shabby Chic

I love this style though not my normal type of card and not easy to get the right look.
There are some very talented people out there who are much better at this.

To do this I tore the lovely hummingbird paper diagonally and tucked another strip  of paper and some lace underneath. I inked the edges of the papers with aged mahogany distressed ink.
I used Marianne Dies Anja corner in pink Centura Pearl plus some bought and punched  flowers and leaves and swirls made with MD dies LR0116, LR0156 and LR0157. I used the small rectangle from MD die CR1242 to frame the sentiment.
2 butterflies and pink gems to finish.

I am entering this in the following challenges:-

In the Pink Things With Wings
Make My Monday Shabby Chic
The Shabby Tea Room In My Garden
Marianne's Design Divas Pink Please
Cute Card Thursday Summer Colours
