SOS Challenge #17 - Shabby Chic, Distressed or Vintage

I am a huge fan of the Shabby Chic, Distressed and Vintage themes however I LOVE to look at other peoples creations and not make one of my own!  This theme absolutely terrifies me more than any other!!  BUT.....the theme this week for Challenge #17 over at Shopping our Stash (SOS) is Shabby Chic, Distressed or Vintage so I participated of course but kept it very simple:
I used some leftover scraps from my last post to make this somewhat vintage, distressed card.  The paper is from Bo Bunny's Timepiece collection and the flourish stamp behind the flower is from a SU set that I own and have rarely used (how's that for using my stash?).  I distressed the lace with Tim Holtz distress ink & airbrushed my flower by Recollections with copics to match a little bit better.  I also coloured the pearls with copics to match.  I swear I will never, ever buy any other pearls than white as I just love that I can use copics to colour them to match any project I'm working on.  

Well I hope you play along with this week over at SOS so I can look at your fabulous Shabby Chic, vintage or Distressed creations and hopefully get over my fear of this theme :)  The other DT girls have some fabulous creations to share with you too!

What a beautiful card, Crystal! This Timepiece paper is just gorgeous... in fact, I think that all of Bo Bunny's latest collections have been winners. Love how you set the flower in front of the flourish!
