Colour Create #17 - Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate

I love the challenges over at Colour Create and this weeks colours are just gorgeous, Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate which are the colours I think of for Neapolitan Ice Cream.

There is always an added element which isn't compulsory to use but I always try to incorporate it into my design so this week it is Shabby Chic! what is someones definition of Shabby Chic and is it the same as mine?

This is the definition I found on the Internet

Shabby chic is a form of Interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique.

So this was the picture of a beautiful cushion given to us for inspiration.



and here is my take on Shabby Chic with the colours we were given to work with



I like this card but not sure it is Shabby enough, maybe it is a modern version of Shabby Chic!

Card base - Mocha Bazzill
Papers - Chocolate Flourishes from Pink Petticoat, Pink and Lemon from my scrap box
Stamps - Love Jesse Edwards
Flowers - Prima
Brads, Braid, Buttons and Charm from my stash

What do you think, is it Shabby enough?

A perfectly shabby chic card! It is fabulous. I do love the lace-up bit you've done and the papers are distressed so beautifully.
