Shabby Chic?

Welcome to another My Besties Challenge, this time around the theme is
to be honest I never quite know how to do shabby, and usually end up just rubbing the edges of the papers with a brown ink pad, which is exactly what I've done this time LOL! although I've also used a creamy ink pad this time too and crumpled up the paper I used to make the rolled roses before die cutting them, I rubbed a white metallic paint over the corners to give them a slightly metallic look, which unfortunately doesn't show up so well in the photo.  Hopefully that will be shabby enough, as for the chic part - I don't have a chic bone in my body hehe!

I don't know what Shabby Chic is supposed to be either, and I don't really care! But I do like your card - the colours are lovely, the image is gorgeous and the papers are really nice ;-) I like the gem arrangement and the ribbon effect - the mini slider is so cute! Love it!!! x
