Make my Monday - Shabby Chic

This week's theme at Make My Monday  is Shabby Chic.

When making my DT card I asked myself 'What is the difference between vintage and shabby chic?'. So I tried to make a card that was shabby chic but NOT vintage. If only I would apply my mind to the world's great problems!!!

The bird and leaf stamps are Kaisercraft and I used paper scraps, embossing folders, gliding wax (the dirty look on the base card is actually pewter colour wax, Wink of Stella on the wing and a big net flower.  When I chose this flower I think I must have been looking at it upside-down or something because I could see it had a bit of a pattern in the middle but I didn't think it was anything in particular. But then I must have accidentally put it on right way up, as I can now clearly see there's a bunny on there! Hope I haven't accidentally made an Easter card!

Anyway, hope you will join in at Make My Monday .
