Feeling A Bit Shabby Today...Shabby Chic That Is

Happy first day of fall....
I love fall...however, today it's all about being shabby
"shabby chic"
I made this card with a couple of challenges in mind....
 
 
one is for The Shabby Tea Room using this inspiration photo....
 
 
the challenge is white and to add twine....
I decided to use a neutral, creamy white
AND
speaking of The Shabby Tea Room, I will be guest designing there on Sept 30th
I was in their Top 3 last week and won a gorgeous digital from "Digital Papers by Jan Etsy"
plus,  the honor of getting to guest design...
WOW...how great is that...these girls on the DT are amazing with their creations!!
Thank you so much The Shabby Tea Room!!
 
I am also entering this in the challenge at Joan's Gardens
to use neutral colors, a flourish, and photo (my photo comes from "The Graphic Fairy")
and a product from Joan's Gardens
I used a JustRite lacey background stamp, CLD Flourish, leaves, and the Sizzix Rolled Rose die,
 plus Kaiser pearls.
I trimmed around the edge of the background image to give my card a "shape"
 
My accordion fall card won last week at Joan's Gardens..
The prize...$25 in product from her shop...thank you so much Joan!!!
