Shabby Chic Card

I have never been a Shabby Chic Artist but when I first saw Frank Garcia's artworks I was kind of come into thinking why not? I thought I'd try Shabby Chic someday for a change. Yesterday while I was looking at Frank's posts I got a message from a friend who congratulated me for winning a challenge layout from the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog on an international category, and I thought it's about time to explore other techniques in terms of making LO and cards. I tell you I am not that good at all. Shabby Chic is entirely a whole new level but I tried it anyway. So ok, without any further adieu here is my card a la Shabby Chic style:

This is how it looks like when the card is closed.

And this is how it looks like when it's opened.

There are several old and new products that I used in making this card. Here is the list:
Papers ~ My Mind's Eye's 29th Street Market and Wild Asparagus
Flowers ~ Assorted from Prima, Jolee's Boutique, and Recollections
Brads ~ Basic Grey & My Mind's Eye
Flourish Bling ~ Craft's
Crystal Charm ~ Recollections

This card will also be my official entry to Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog's Challenge #27 (Card Sketch by Kathleen).

Hope you guys like it! Happy Scrapping!
