H2H is going Shabby Chic

It's Shabby Chic week over at H2H challenges!  

When this challenge was first proposed, I was stumped by the theme.  However, I have seen some amazing artwork with the new Ariana paper pack, and after a while it started to scream shabby chic to me. 

So I created a layout based on a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.  I used the floral paper from Ariana, along with Ariana Coral, Crystal Blue and Ariana Grey cardstocks, as well as Pink Glitter Paper. 

I cut a large doily shape using Artbooking in Crystal blue, then trimmed the outer layer to put towards the top of the layout, while the inner layer went on the right side.  With the grey cardstock, I ran it through my Cuttlebug using our new Damask Embossing Folder, then lightly sanded it allowing some of the white core to show through.  I cut Easter using Artbooking as well in the Pink Glitter Paper.  I lightly distressed the edges of the papers with scissors, and added some Colonial White Rosette Ribbon (retired) and Pink Glitter Gems to finish it off. 

Some detail:

Be sure to play along at H2H challenges this week!  I'd love to see your shabby chic work!
