Shabby Chic at CD Sunday

Hello again, these weeks seem to come around far too quickly and here we are with another challenge from CD Sunday, this time chosen by Sue who has decided we need a bit of Shabby Chic in our lives.

I decided to use one of the MCS discs for my card, I've had it for ages and only used it once or twice so found just the thing I needed and quite enjoyed using the programme again.
Now I have to be honest and say I'm never sure what Shabby Chic is but maybe I've got it with this one.  I've used my craft knife along the edges of all the mats and for the top layer I've put some glitter on. The lace has made an appearance again and this time I've used a full piece then cut another piece in half, one half I've put along the edge of the card but the other piece has made the flower which is finished off with a pearl.  I'm thinking this may be a good card for my mum on mothers day, so I may add a sentiment later.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Hiding in my craft room- Freestyle
Fussy and Fancy - Ribbons and Lace
Sister Act - Anything Goes
