Shabby Chic Challenge

Last Sunday we coaches were challenged to create a Shabby Chic card on a private FB page.  I'm not real certain what that is but I've come to the conclusion it's kinda vintage and feminine.

I used an assortment of products to make my card.  Can you figure them out?

I stamped the Spring Bouquet stamps on Whip Cream card stock using Banana Cream, Pineapple Smoothie, Pretty Amethyst, and Lavender Fusion, then cut them out, and set aside.  On my folded card base of Whip Cream I sponged Banana Cream ink though a couple places of the Starburst Lines stencil then lightly sponged the same ink between the stenciled areas.  I die cut a piece of Banana Cream card stock that I cut to size for the Doily die and lined it with the same size of White Liner Sheet then die cut.  I did have to shim with a piece of card stock to get a complete cut of the die. Our Bloom Tool worked great to get rid of the little unwanted pieces.  I sponged a bit of Oatmeal Cookie ink on the die before attaching it to the card base. I left a bit of the doily off the card and cut off that unneeded piece.  The White Liner sheets (double sided adhesive sheet) are great for getting the whole piece adhered!   I stamped the phrase from the Sentimental Prints set using Oatmeal Cookie ink onto a strip of Whip Cream card stock, stenciled a little bit like I did the card base, sponged the edges and layered on a piece of Banana Cream card stock.  Using Foam Squares I attached this piece then adhered the purple flowers around it.  I foam dotted the yellow flowers and added some Rainbow Drops to the flower centers. 

Did I succeed in making a Shabby Chic card?
