An attempt at shabby chic

Hi Friends..Hope you all are doing good ..:)
Today I took an attempt at shabby chic but I am still unsure it falls under shabby chic or not..:P..as some colors came out to be pretty loud..:( I would appreciate if someone clarifies..:))
I got to know how tough it is to make a shabby card .. at least for me ..lol
Used flower punch to create the layered paper flower alongside the sentiment. Used corrugated paper for the background and pattern papers to border the central area as well as side-lines.

  1. very nice card ! Love the purple flower in the center.
    Thanks for sharing with us at beyond Grey challenges.Unfortunately the colors do not qualify as Shabby chic, Shabby chic basically is - Old , vintage looking with Dullness as the main trait hence Colors are mostly pastels , but to make it Chic we use something new little pop of sparkle or lil hint of color something like that. Hope that helps
