Shabby chic ? ...

I'm not sure if this is Shabby chic or not, but it's definately DISTRESSED. Which is the challenge over at Just Magnolia. It's a recipe of 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon over at Allsorts challenge.
This brilliant sketch is the challenge at Secret crafter. I liked the simplicity of it.

The card is SU, the papers are Laura Ashley, the flowers, brads, spacers and ribbon are all from my stash. The sentiment is PB from the Critter party clear set.
All the edges have been distressed. The DP's have been chalked aswell so that they look grubby. My pretty little Tilda has been coloured with pencils and sansador.

Well I'm off to start another challenge while DS is in the bath. Pop back soon and feel free to leave a comment.
